SIRE Inclusion and Diversity Statement

SIRE Inclusion and Diversity Statement

Inclusion is valuing, appreciating, and effectively utilizing the talents of people with a diversity of dimensions including age, appearance, beliefs, education, ethnic origin, gender, ideas, job classifications, physical ability, political views, race, religion, sexual orientation and more. SIRE is committed to creating and sustaining an inclusive environment that values and respects each individual, and that is welcoming, equitable and supportive of differences in the pursuit of common goals.

Toward that end, SIRE strives to hire employees without bias; and attract, develop and retain employees, volunteers and clients who support our commitment.

SIRE believes that best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, resources and personalities to tackle the complex and strategic challenges of the organization. The variety of viewpoints that comes from different life experiences and cultures enhances the discussions and decisions of the board and adds a much-needed layer of accountability for their stakeholders.
