IDBE Defined

In NYU Stern's committment to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Belonging, it is important that we develop and share common language in order to make clear our shared vision and goals. 
 



Shared Language
  • Inclusion:
The action or state of accepting or of being accepted within a group or community.
 
  • Diversity: 
The composition of differing elements, especially a combination of people who possess different social identities. * Note: there is no such thing as a “diverse individual”  – you need a group for it to be considered diverse.
 
  • Belonging:
A feeling of being connected to a community.
 
  • Equity:
The quality of being fair and impartial; freedom from bias or favoritism.
