Commitment to Inclusion, Diversity and anti-racism

The Innovative Education Center holds an Commitment to Inclusion, Diversity and anti-racism that calls us to identify, critically analyze, and intervene against the injurious effects of racism. The commitment urges us to speak out against the kinds of systemic racism. We call for nonviolent social and political action to provoke systemic change that promotes justice, safeguards human rights, and ensures fair and equitable treatment and respect for human dignity for all people. Together, we continue to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse voices of our members. It fuels our innovative approach and connects us closer to our communities we serve. Our commitment to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, identity, and experience drives us forward every day. Every member, volunteer and staff member – whatever their race, gender, age, ethnicity, cultural heritage or nationality; religious or political beliefs; sexual orientation or gender identity; or socioeconomic, veteran or ability status – has the right to inclusion, respect, agency and voice in Innovative Education Center.
