At the TPS, we work together to ensure that all children thrive and achieve their full potential. When we embrace all the talent that our diverse backgrounds, experiences, and expertise bring together to make that happen, we create the optimal environment for success. The TPS created a Task Force to address diversity, inclusion and racial disparities. We will provide updates on the important work of the Task Force as it develops.
Diversity involves understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. These differences can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, ancestry, national origin, immigration status, religion, gender, marital or family status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, veteran status, disability, or other characteristics.
Inclusion represents the engagement and participation of diverse individuals in an organization. Initiatives around inclusion recognize the inherent worth and dignity of all individuals, and work to include all into the organization's overall capacity and decision-making.
