Whether related to accessibility, gender, ethnicity, age or sexual orientation, it’s important to find intentional ways to grow in our understanding and support of others. The Safe Community Project’s (MySafe:LA) commitment to fostering an inclusive culture is a core component of our mission. We believe identifying ourselves as visible and voluntary allies is vital amidst the challenges all of us face in our daily lives. We are focused on encouraging and supporting an environment where all colleagues feels supported to bring their whole selves to work.
In support of this human responsibility to one another, we encourage our leaders and colleagues to pledge ‘I’m in.’ This inclusion commitment gives each individual the opportunity to demonstrate their personal dedication to an inclusive culture, while visibly identifying their allyship to others. We also offer ongoing recommendations on how they may share, participate, discuss, act and continuously learn in support of their commitments.
