Statement of Inclusion

 

The Phipps Center embraces equity, diversity, and inclusion as core beliefs and values. We strive to create and foster an environment of respect, where everyone’s creative spirit is supported and celebrated, no matter their race, ethnicity, creed, color, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, socio-economic status, religion, age, gender, or gender identity.

 

We, at The Phipps, will endeavor to maintain an equitable, diverse, inclusive, and accessible organization by actively addressing barriers, exclusions, and biases. We will honor differences to make The Phipps a place in which each unique person can collaborate, create, and celebrate with others.
