What is Diversity?

SFCC recognizes that diversity is a phrase that cannot capture the full extent of dynamic differences in people. SFCC honors continuums of culture, language, age, social class, body type, color, accent, height, ability, disability, gender, gender expression or creativity, gender identity,  sexual orientation, medical status, political affiliation, religion, spiritual belief, creed, veteran status, language, mental health, immigration status, national origin, health status, and the indeterminate. SFCC supports and encourages diversity in a safe, positive and nurturing environment. SFCC values going beyond tolerance and champions an environment of inclusiveness and equity that both embraces and celebrates the rich dimensions of humanity.
