AVID FOUNDER

AVID Center Board | Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

We exist to make education more equitable.

We work with schools to disrupt educational inequities and make systemic and sustainable changes.

We know the work applies to ourselves as well.

We will champion equitable opportunities for all.

We will create a culture of belonging.

We believe expanding our own understanding, challenging our own thinking, and questioning our own assumptions and practices is essential.

We strive to celebrate and value differences in thinking, foster an environment that encourages tough questions and candid discussions.

We aim to get to know each other.

We trust each other to call each other in when we are not upholding these values.

We will model through action our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion through our actions and board governance.

We commit to building a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive organization.
