Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion

Wisconsin Friends Explore embraces the values of diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion, defined as:

  • Diversity: Recognizing all the ways in which people differ, including race, ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, religion, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, education, marital status, language, and physical appearance as well as different ideas, perspectives, and values.

  • Equity: Promoting justice, impartiality and fairness within the procedures, processes, and distribution of resources.

  • Accessibility: Giving equitable access to everyone along the continuum of human ability and experience from public accommodations and leadership opportunities to representation in content for all.

  • Inclusion: Authentically bringing traditionally excluded individuals and/or groups into processes, activities, and decision/policy making in a way that shares power.
