The heart of unity is understanding. To achieve the goals we have for our company, we define inclusion, diversity and equity as follows:
Inclusion: An environment where folks with different ideas, backgrounds, perspectives, and identities are valued, utilized, and welcomed, both personally and professionally. The concept of cultural competency is woven into practice and policy.
Diversity: The presence of individual and group differences at all levels of the organization.
Equity: Ensuring equal access to the same opportunities by recognizing inherent imbalances and barriers to opportunity and closing achievement gaps.
