Oprah Winfrey has achieved an unprecedented level of success in business. Not only has her work as a media proprietor and talk show host propelled her to a net worth of over $3 billion, but she is currently cited as one of the greatest philanthropists and most influential people in the world. President Obama awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and both Duke and Harvard Universities have awarded her honorary doctoral degrees—a long way away from her impoverished youth in rural Mississippi and inner-city Milwaukee.

The words are often used interchangeably, but they are not the same.Diversity means “differences” – religion, race, age, sexual orientation, gender and culture – the things that make us unique. The definition of “inclusion,” on the other hand, is the act of using all of these individual characteristics to create a beneficial and meaningful whole.
