Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
We recognize the diversity of our community and value the benefits of shared experiences, viewpoints, and ideas through a climate of civility and mutual respect. We’re committed to fostering a culture of respect, equity and inclusion and believe these are the responsibility of every member of our organization.
Diversity embraces human differences while building interconnections. We recognize diversity in our community to include, but not limited to, race/ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, language, culture, religion, mental and physical ability, national origin, military status and other definitions.
Equity is creating and maintaining systems and conditions where all have the opportunity to succeed, through access and participation, such that all may achieve equal outcomes.
Inclusion is the active, intentional, and ongoing creation and support of an environment where all feel welcomed, and the human dignity of each individual is respected, and valued.
