Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity
and Inclusion

Life-Work Planning Center is committed to the goal of fostering and preserving

a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion as we carry out our mission.

We define diversity, equity, and inclusion as:

  • DIVERSITY: Representation across experiences, views, and backgrounds
  • EQUITY: Fair opportunity, access, engagement, and treatment
  • INCLUSION: Respect for differing perspectives while ensuring historically underrepresented groups are included and represented

We will achieve our goal through on-going examination of ourselves as individuals and collectively as an organization. That examination will include careful attention to our communications, systems, strategies, actions, allocation of resources and biases either conscious or unconscious.

Everyone engaged with Life-Work Planning Center, whether board, staff, volunteer, participant, or community member has the right to feel respected and valued regardless of gender, ability, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation or identity, and socio-economic status.

Life-Work Planning Center is an equal opportunity provider.
