What is E.I.D. ?
Engagement is the feeling of being fully involved in and enthusiastic about work. Engaged employees have a heightened connection to their work, the organization and its mission and their co-workers. Engaged employees find personal meaning in their work and are more likely to go above the minimum and expend “discretionary effort.”
Inclusion refers to a sense of belonging; feeling respected, valued, and seen for who you are and valued as a contributing member of the team, workgroup, or organization. An inclusive culture is one in which barriers to contribution and negative biases are eliminated, and people are respected and able to give their personal best.
To better understand the EID Committee’s purpose and activities please review our charter.
Diversity is the range of human qualities that impact and influence how people are perceived and how they behave.
