Definitions of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

As part of Fisher's commitment to creating and sustaining a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community, we embrace the following definitions.


Diversity is embracing the richness of cultural and diverse backgrounds, identities, abilities, life experiences, beliefs, and perspectives. A diverse community strengthens outcomes and builds resilient foundations for future growth.


Equity is identifying and eliminating the social and structural barriers that exist for marginalized groups. Equity promoted shared understanding and common experience that foster stronger relationships and empathy.


Inclusion is celebrating the value of all, fostering a sense of belonging, and encouraging authentic and full engagement in our community. Inclusion ensures that each is a part of the whole.
