Diversity and Inclusion Statement

EACE understands that true diversity extends well beyond historical or legal definitions; it includes every aspect of being human. Be it race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic class, age, sexual orientation, gender expression, religion, physical ability, or job and life circumstance, the differences between us as individuals are the same assets that unite us as a professional community. We affirm the value of our diversity and will work to promote inclusiveness, to encourage understanding, and to celebrate our differences as well as our common threads.
