DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
They strive to maximize their impact on the community by creating and sustaining an environment that leverages the creativity and innovation that result from the unique perspectives that individuals bring. They believe that their community is best served when diversity and inclusion are embedded in everything they do. As such, they encourage the active participation of theirteam; including their employees, volunteers, donors, advocates and community partners.
Diversity refers to the similarities and differences, both visible and invisible, that exist among people. Diversity includes values, beliefs, lifestyles, abilities, ethnicities, ages, genders, experiences, thinking styles, backgrounds, orientations, behaviors, cultures, socioeconomic status and the innumerable other aspects that shape an individual’s personality and unique identity.
Inclusion is inviting and embracing the full breadth of perspectives, fully engaging those perspectives, and leveraging them to achieve their individual and collective potential. Inclusion requires action. Inclusion is more than accommodating or allowing diversity. It is about building strength through the inherent value of diversity and seeing it as a fundamental part of all they do. It requires a focus on how each of them makes decisions and a willingness to recognize and eliminate barriers to inclusion.See more
