re: Diversity vs Inclusivity: Understanding the Difference VIEW POST


Diversity and inclusion are mutually exclusive.

This is a little confusing--shouldn't it be our goal to have both? My understanding of the phrase "mutually exclusive" is that it means "you can't have both at the same time."


You are correct, I was interrupting "mutually exclusive" as meaning they aren't always correlated, that you can have one without the other. They are separate concepts that should be considered differently and not always as a pair.

I have updated the wording to be better. Thank you so much for the feedback! I am working really hard at trying to convey what is in my head and sometimes putting it in writing doesn't come out perfectly


I think this post is excellent. :) Thanks for clarifying.
