Diversity & Inclusion Statement

“As our Diversity and Inclusion statement makes clear, diversity, equity, and inclusion are all important Whitfield values, essential to our mission. My position as Director of Equity & Inclusion (begun June ’18 as result of the strategic plan) allows dedicated focus and support for these values. When I think about what an inclusive and equitable community looks like, I think of a place where all of us are welcomed, valued, and supported, and where we all have every opportunity to participate and to succeed. It is a place where we recognize that sometimes our differences give us certain advantages or disadvantages and that it is our responsibility as a community to be aware of that fact and to examine everything that we do in order to remove any barriers that prevent everyone from taking full advantage of the Whitfield experience.”
