APSE Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Declaration

Video Description: Diverse individuals read the APSE EDI declaration while sitting in their home offices.

Transcript of video: Arizona APSE stands and support APSE's declaration on equity, diversity and inclusion. This is that declaration. Arizona APSE APSE’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion is unwavering – across all of our work and our actions – and is central to our mission. We believe diversity unlocks innovation, which drives us to create a culture that celebrates and supports people of every disability, race/ethnicity, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion, and lived experience. We will drive individual and organizational accountability and provide resources and tools, which will build the necessary capabilities to direct systemic change. We will foster an inclusive climate by listening and engaging with our diverse communities so that everyone feels welcomed, valued, and empowered to bring their authentic whole selves. We will build in coalition and develop opportunities for historically excluded individuals, groups, and voices to be leaders in our work. That is our commitment. This is our commitment. This is our commitment. This is our commitment.
