The members of the Seattle Executives Association are deeply committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive membership environment. This environment includes members with varied pasts and perspectives, as well as backgrounds and experiences. We believe that promoting inclusion within the group will generate deeper insights that help grow our member businesses in new and exciting ways that will better serve us all.
Diversity is the differences in cultures, abilities, ideas, philosophies, backgrounds, and histories that exist among individuals. We believe business owners with various life experiences bring better ideas and ingenuity to the Seattle Executives Association. Group diversity improves the quality of ideas shared between members. We believe limiting membership to those with likeminded beliefs limits the potential success of all members of the Seattle Executives Association. Our goal is to ensure that all current and prospective members feel welcome.
Inclusion shows individuals they are valued, recognized, accepted, and celebrated for who they truly are. It involves respecting the abilities, beliefs, backgrounds, and cultures of those in the group. It includes engaging those with diverse perspectives, so they feel an unconditional sense of belonging. Every day, we have the opportunity and responsibility to create a more inclusive world.
Equity is when everyone gets what they need to have a fair chance to succeed. Equity recognizes that providing the “same for everyone” may not overcome systemic disparities and an individual’s life circumstances. Equity is our goal
