Diversity & Inclusivity Committee

raised hands

The mission of the Diversity & Inclusivity Committee is to foster the growth and participation of underrepresented* populations at our school, and to build awareness through education in order to accept and appreciate all members in our community. *These differences and similarities include age, ethnicity, language and culture, economic status, educational background, gender, geographic location, housing status, marital status, mental ability, national origin, organizational position and tenure, parental status, physical ability, political philosophy, race, religion, sexual orientation, body shape and size, immigration status, indigenous heritage, and work experience.

La meta de la Comité de la diversidad y la inclusión es promover el crecimiento y la participación de la gente bajo-representada* en nuestra escuela, y levantar la conciencia, a través de la educación, para aceptar y valorar todo el socio de nuestra comunidad. *Estas diferencias y semejanzas incluyen la edad, la etnia, el lenguaje y la cultura, el estado económico, la experiencia educacional, el género, el lugar geográfico, el estado de alojamiento, el estado civil, la capacidad mental, la nacionalidad, la posición organizativa y antigüedad, el estado paterno, la capacidad física, la filosofía política, la raza, la religión, la orientación sexual, la forma y el tamaño del cuerpo, estado de inmigración, herencia indígena, y la experiencia de trabajo.
