"As a Diversity & Inclusion educator and more recently a Workplace Wellness consultant + Mind Body coach, I am continuously witnessing just how powerful the synergy between Inclusion + Wellness + Mind Body approaches can be. They are essential in supporting clients through their important journey of identifying barriers, practices & personal habits that diminish rather than cultivate sustainable capacities for organizational + personal actualization. There is something about working from within the intersections of these three areas that activates a greater sense of purpose + motivation in Clients & I love being part of that - witnessing this spark of light ignite + lead the way."

MEANING MAKING and how we apply the terms

DIVERSITY is expressed and experienced in a myriad of ways that include, but are not limited to: race + ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, class status, language, national origin, cultural + religious beliefs, age, ability, body type, political perspective and citizenship status. Diversity is all of us, all 7.6 billion of us (UN estimate, Dec 2017).

INCLUSION is a human right. The action or process of deliberately including, welcoming + respecting the diversity of others AND continuously pursuing efforts to ensure that all individuals feel a sense of belonging, while also being able to safely express their individual forms of diversity. Inclusion, as an action, creates a climate of inclusiveness that is fundamental to sustainable outcomes within any context.

MEANING MAKING and how we apply the terms

WELLNESS is both a state and a pursuit. An evolving process of optimizing overall health, mental + spiritual well-being, physical health, creativity & self-care. Everything we do + feel has an impact on our well-being and the reverse is also true. Key dimensions of wellness include: emotional well-being, socio-cultural sphere, physical self, and occupational + educational spaces (NWI, 2017). 

MIND BODY as a concept is largely based on the understanding that our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, body + spirituality are profoundly connected to one another, as well as to our social, natural & even global environment in a cause/effect relationship. Techniques that support positive/healing/healthy Mind Body connection include: yoga, mindful breathing, prayer, mantra meditation, cognitive therapy (NIH, 2017).
