ACS Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Seattle ACS Non-Discrimination Policy & Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We believe that our organization should reflect and draw upon the vast diversity of the communities we serve. Toward this goal, we:

  • Strive to create a welcoming environment where everyone can feel accepted and respected as an individual.

  • Embrace difference and diversity of identity, experience, and thought, and actively encourage inclusive behaviors across our organization.

  • Emphasize recruitment and retention of a diverse and inclusive membership and leadership, holding this as a key leadership priority.

Discrimination against, or mistreatment of, any individual based on race, religion, gender, gender expression, age, disability, or sexual orientation will not be tolerated. Rather, we hold that all members have a duty to the organization to welcome members of diverse backgrounds and to participate in building an atmosphere of respect, collaboration, and commitment to serving the vibrant communities of our City.
