"
Human Equity challenges the boundaries of current thinking on diversity and inclusion because it represents a natural evolution from focusing on organizational barriers to empowering the individual and the organization collectively. By creating a platform where each person and organization can determine whether a person’s unique skills and attribut’s are appropriately aligned and fit with the organization’s objectives, it provides a real breakthrough strategy that will also address diversity fatigue.

Wilson’s Human Equity model advances diversity, crystallizes it as a manifestation of strengths of character that foster well-being, and imbues life with meaning and purpose. Intellectually stimulating, Wilson has crafted a holistic endeavor that explores, expresses, and enhances the very best attributes that make our work and life worthy of living. "

As Trevor explains, being inclusive starts with leaders going back to basics and remembering that people are individuals first and part of a group second. Our actions should value and respond to the needs of each individual to help them develop and contribute to their full potential and be all they can be. "
