The intentional effort towards fair treatment, access, and opportunity for every employee based on their individual needs that allows everyone to reach their highest potential. We do not all start from the same place and there are instances where adjustment to imbalances need to be addressed to ensure everyone can succeed.
Fairness in accessibility and mobility to meet the needs of all community members, including access to quality, affordable, safe, and reliable multimodal transportation options. The effort to reduce socioeconomic disparities in communities.
In the workplace, inclusion is when all employees feel valued, can be themselves, and their work and ideas are respected.
The sense that one feels valued, appreciated, and accepted by their organization and coworkers. This allows for positive connections to be made and for everyone to bring their authentic selves to work.
