Diversity Policy & Procedures
The Sanville Institute seeks a deep awareness of issues related to social justice, social privilege, oppression, diversity and intersectionality in clinical practice, in the Sanville community and in society at large. Our recognition of white supremacy culture necessitates that we discern and act against racism in its many forms and structures.
The institute is committed to increasing diversity of all kinds, including, but not limited to, age, gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, language, and socioeconomic status in its board, administration, and extended community.
The Sanville Institute strives to reflect the diversity of our society in our community, programmatic offerings, and promotional materials. We believe that diverse participants and perspectives enrich, improve learning environments and contribute to the rectification of inequities.
An appreciation for diversity and respect for multiculturalism is explicitly expressed in organizational and board development and in all programmatic planning.
