DEI & Belonging Definitions
Everything that makes us who we are, seen and unseen
The full range of staff differences both visible and invisible including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, generation, socioeconomic status, education, citizenship status, religious affiliations & beliefs, mental or physical ability, communication styles, national origin, political beliefs, language, and cultural norms, traditions, and values.
Celebrating & embracing all backgrounds
The active practice of celebrating and embracing staff of all backgrounds, identities, abilities, and perspectives to feel accepted, safe, empowered, supported, and affirmed to be their authentic selves at work.
Eliminating barriers that have prevented the full participation of communities and individuals most impacted by systemic oppression. We achieve equity by ensuring that everyone has support and access to the resources they need to be successful.
A culture of trust, where all voices are heard
Fostering a workplace where all people are recognized for their inherent worth and dignity, talents, beliefs, backgrounds, and ways of living without feeling the need to change, alter, or assimilate. Belonging is a real sense of fitting in as yourself and feeling like you are an important member of the team.
