Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Framework
We value diversity in all of its definitions, including who we are, how we think, and what we do.
DIVERSITY. Individual differences (e.g., personality, learning styles, and life experiences) and group/social differences (e.g., race/ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, country of origin, and ability as well as cultural, political, religious, linguistic or other affiliations).
EQUITY. The deliberate and intentional crafting of solutions that center the voices and meet the needs of different groups based on their histories and access to resources that will lead to the outcome of fairness.
INCLUSION. The active, intentional, and continuous process to address inequities in power and privilege and build a respectful and diverse community that ensures welcoming spaces and opportunities for all to flourish.
