Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
Within the Sterling community, we believe everyone should have equal access to community resources and opportunities. While not always the case, inequity is most commonly associated with groups that have experienced discrimination related to their race, ethnicity, nationality, language, religion, socioeconomics, gender, gender presentation, sexual orientation, or disabilities. Equity implies a need for fairness (not necessarily equality) in the distribution of resources, and the entitlement of everyone to an engaging, supported, and meaningful educational experience.
