Diversity Statement

At SHAC, we do not make assumptions about you or your body based on appearance, gender identity or name.  We are engaged in continuous learning to make our services more equitable and accessible. We highly value the promotion and affirmation of human diversity, and our center is committed to upholding the values articulated in Carleton College’s Statement on Diversity. We understand diversity to include, but not be limited to, race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, sexual/affectional orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, size, ability, socioeconomic status, religious beliefs, and social and political worldviews. For each person who comes through our doors or interacts with our staff in other settings, we strive to establish a safe, accepting, and welcoming environment.

We recognize the impact that prejudice, discrimination, and oppression can have on emotional and physical well-being, and we pay close attention to the ways that our students, staff members, and community are affected by social injustice. Our staff and trainees claim our own personal identities and we honor those of others. We believe we must continually examine ourselves (i.e. our biases, identities, and privileges) as well as our service-delivery systems in a way that helps us better understand, connect with, and serve our community. We encourage feedback and recommendations to help us recognize problem areas, to reduce barriers, and to improve our services.
