Inclusion & Belonging: An Action and A Feeling
Updated: Nov 22
Inclusion and Belonging are interdependent - inclusion is the actionable input and belonging is the resulting output. Both are measurable, but in different ways. It's like measuring the investment and then calculating the return on that investment. However, inclusion is not a build it and they will come setup; intentional action is required and that means the action cannot be passive. For purposes of DEI (or DEIB or DEIAB), active engagement is required for inclusion to successfully result in a feeling of belonging. To learn more, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
