What’s the core meaning of diversity, equity and inclusion — or DEI for short? Each is an element of “a synergistic triad,” notes a new white paper from physician search firm Merritt Hawkins.
“Diversity generally refers to hiring people with different backgrounds, equity suggests fair treatment and opportunities for all individuals, while inclusion describes ensuring that all feel they belong and are valued,” the report begins. “When executed well, this triad is conducive to a healthy, engaged, and participatory workforce.”
