Vision/ Values

What DEI Means to Us

DIVERSITY is a group of people who are different in the same place. These characteristics could be everything that makes us unique, including but not limited to our cognitive skills and persnoality traits, along with the things that shape our identity.

EQUITY: Promoting the same fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people, while also striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups.

INCLUSION is involvement and empowerment where the inherent worth and dignity of all people are recognized.
