Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Wyman
We stand with our Black, LGBTQ+, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian American, and Pacific Islander young people, colleagues, friends, and neighbors.
We are committed to providing a safe environment of acceptance, education, and inclusion for our young people and colleagues.
It is our responsibility to stand up, speak out, and take action. Our teens, colleagues, and community can expect:
We acknowledge and honor the fundamental value and dignity of all persons
We commit to an environment of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We are passionate about fostering an inclusive and equitable space that promotes and values diversity and belonging, where every teen and staff member can be confident bringing their whole self to Wyman and achieving their very best.
We commit to courageous conversations, personal development, social awareness, and fostering an organizational culture and program spaces that recognize systemic inequities and center the voices of the youth and communities we serve.
We are unified in our shared commitment to excellence in pursuit of our mission and to working with allies to dismantle educational inequities in our communities that create barriers to our vision of equity and opportunity for all youth.
