Welch’s equity, diversity and inclusion promise
The importance of equity, diversity and inclusion in our hiring and day-to-day business practice is a priority. What does EDI mean to us at Lévesque Marchand Welch?
What is equity? Equity is distinct from equality. While equality means giving everyone the same resources and treatment – no matter their gender, race, sexual orientation, or other characteristic – equity goes a step further. Equity is about giving individuals the same access to opportunities, regardless of the resources required in each instance. Equity levels the playing field by giving more to those who need it.
What is diversity? This is the practice or quality of recognizing people’s differences, and respecting and including those who do not share the same characteristics, values, ideas and opinions as us.
What is inclusion? Inclusion is about fostering an environment where all individuals feel welcomed and appreciated, and where their contributions and perspectives are valued.
