DIVERSITY MANDATE

Diversity and inclusion means nourishing the values of empathy, reciprocity, compassion and responsibility, all while empowering the voices of those who have been historically silenced.

The Jessies acknowledge the existence of barriers and take active steps to address the changing needs of the community. Diversity sparks possibilities through willingness and the spirit of openness. The Jessies lead by taking risks to create opportunities for its members and the community at large. We invite members to be open, seek clarity and take on responsibility of leadership.

When we empower each other, we connect courage with gratitude; this connection nourishes a truthful voice.

We are committed to fostering a safe and respectful community in which everyone benefits from a sense of belonging wherein our diverse experiences are validated, and from that, grow a resilient community.

In the pursuit of equality and accessibility, our job is to actively listen to, see and acknowledge the marginalized, tear down all barriers, and embody inclusion in everything we do.
