Respect is the act of treating every person with equal value, period. Every person is equal and deserves the same level of care and attention. It is a priority to treat each person how we ourselves would want to be treated. When everyone feels respected, we become much stronger. In fact, there is no limit to what we can accomplish together.
Inclusion is the act of creating environments in which any individual or group can be and feel welcomed, respected, supported, safe and valued to fully participate.
Safety is first, last and always about people. It is not just physical safety, but mental and emotional safety also.
Equity is the act of developing fair systems, procedures, and resource distribution mechanisms to create equitable opportunity for all people.
