ACUA is committed to embracing diversity and inclusion in the association so that every member, regardless of race, color of skin, religion, national origin, age, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, range of abilities, genetic information, marital status, or veteran status, feels valued and welcome among all levels of the organization. With this survey, the Diversity and Inclusive Leadership Committee hopes to gather baseline data to determine where ACUA stands as it relates to diversity. Please complete the survey by April 2, 2021. Thank you!

What is diversity?
According to the Global Diversity Practice, diversity is “any dimension that can be used to differentiate groups and people from one another .... It is about empowering people by respecting and appreciating what makes them different, in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, and national origin.
 
Diversity allows for the exploration of these differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment. It means understanding one another by surpassing simple tolerance to ensure people truly value their differences. This allows us both to embrace and celebrate the rich dimensions of diversity contained within each individual and place positive value on diversity in the community and in the workforce.

Each individual in an organization brings with them a diverse set of perspectives, work and life experiences, as well as religious and cultural differences. The power of diversity can only be unleashed, and its benefits reaped when we recognize these differences and learn to respect and value each individual (regardless of their) background.”
