  • To welcome a wide variety of viewpoints and engage thoughtfully and respectfully, even when doing so is uncomfortable;
  • To value differences in race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, mental or physical ability, and other such personal characteristics; and
  • To work towards removing systemic barriers to fulfilling our commitment.
