What does Diversity and Inclusion mean to the Guironnet Group?
An inclusive laboratory has an authentic commitment to understanding and promoting diversity and cultural intelligence while fostering an environment where each individual feels respected, confident, valued, and inspired.
Understanding diversity comes with the acknowledgement that differences in value do not permit differences in treatment. Equity, empathy, and respect are core to any attempt at diversification
Accepting diversity of every kind and building on it to maintain a healthy and happy work environment, is an essential norm for a peaceful and mentally happy person. Valuing the ideas and ideals of every individual apart from being considerate about them would lead to a workspace fit for a productive and constant growth.
Inclusion. Giving opportunities to everyone regardless of sex, ethnicity, social status, age, etc. etc. I think this is important because it allows creativity to span in more directions and more importantly allows problem solving from different perspectives. I expect peers to treat me as an equal and not as inferior/superior to them. I expect a welcoming environment where any individual feels free to express themselves and be proud to show who they are.
Our acceptance of diversity, and even more so our active role in promoting it, is quintessential to creating a space of inclusion. A space that welcomes differing philosophies, upbringings, and personalities. A space that fosters growth in both professional and personal spheres. And most importantly (to myself), a space that enriches our experience of the human condition. Every individual has a right to security, respect, and expression
