Let's Talk Diversity & Inclusion
Our mission is for the IAMCP to reflect diversity & inclusion (D&I) and provide guidance to our members as they work to build and implement their D&I strategies.
For IAMCP, workplace diversity means understanding, accepting, and valuing differences between people, including those of different races, ethnicities, genders, ages, religions, disabilities, and sexual orientations. It also means accepting those with differences in education, personalities, skill sets, experiences, and knowledge bases.
Diversity quotas don’t equal inclusion. Inclusion is when we gather, listen to, and include as many perspectives as possible. Our workplaces should accommodate all human experiences and needs, so inclusion is intentional and driven from the top. The ultimate goal is to discover how to bring out the best in each other to make our teams stronger.
