The Equity Diversity Inclusion Committee is tasked with advancing equity, cultivating diversity, and practicing inclusion by:

 

  1. Creating an environment of continuous learning that is inclusive and creates a brave space where people are open to ideas, expression, embrace differences, and are accepting of all people.

  2. Acknowledging power and its effects of the “ism” by creating accessible opportunities in which diverse individuals can participate.

  3. Being mindful that our identities influence how we perceive and how others perceive us.

  4. Connecting and inspiring members with professional development and learning opportunities centered on EDI.

 

The committee is committed to:

Diversity: We cultivate diversity by sharing our own sets of experiences, culture, beliefs, interests, and education that shape our perspectives and actions.

Equity: We advance equity through fairness by acknowledging that fairness is not always equal.

All people and/or groups are given access to the precise number and types of resources for them to achieve equal results.

Inclusion: We practice inclusion by creating accessible opportunities in which diverse individuals are able to participate in the decision-making process.

Based on these commitments and the mission of the Equity Inclusion Action Committee, the Committee requests that the EC approve the name change to the Equity Diversity Inclusion Action Committee.
