'The Problem with Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity' by Geraldine Cochran

Geraldine Cochran writes on The Scholarly Kitchen: 

It goes without saying that Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity make for an awful acronym: DIE. More importantly, these three words are strung together so often that some think that these words are synonymous and use them interchangeably, leading to a number of people writing about the differences between these three words. Try a quick Google search of ‘diversity vs inclusion vs equity’ and you’ll find several days worth of reading material. …

Although diversity efforts are concerned with representation and who is included, diversity efforts should not be confused with creating an inclusive environment. An inclusive environment does not simply mean that people from various groups are included, it is concerned with what their inclusion in that organization or environment means.

What does being included mean for individuals from marginalized and minoritized groups and what does it mean for their peers from dominant, advantaged, or privileged groups?  How do minoritized people view their participation in the organization and how is their participation viewed by others?

For more information, read the blog post.
