Diversity and Inclusion Statement

Diversity = Positive learning environments for everyone

The Minnesota Literacy Council knows that the success of our work depends on understanding and embracing differences. Diversity in our organizational culture fosters positive learning environments for everyone.

It is our vision to:

  • Understand, acknowledge, and appreciate difference;
  • Utilize our understanding of difference to improve ourselves and our work; and,
  • Foster an organizational culture that is welcoming and inclusive to all.

Diversity includes many dimensions: age, gender, education, race, ethnicity, religion, ability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, personality and talents. We strive to have our staff, volunteers, and board reflect the diversity of the communities we serve in our programs.
