Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (JEDI)

At SLCC, we embrace our values of "Learning" and "Inclusivity" by being individually and collectively committed to growing ourselves through transformative educational experiences and professional development focused on Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion.

What We Believe

Equal treatment.

We believe that everyone deserves respect and equal treatment regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, cultural background, or religious beliefs. When people feel appreciated and included, they can be more creative, innovative, and successful.

A learning culture.

We aim to provide a strong environment where transformative learning and professional development can occur by:

  • Cultivating a growth mindset across the organization to strengthen our culture of feedback.
  • Supporting employees' development and personal growth through high impact experiences and professional development.
  • Developing our leaders' ability to listen more, allowing room for questioning assumptions and including others' lived experiences.
  • Removing obstacles that hinder transformation. Confront and dismantle structural barriers that impede equity through our shared values.
