Making Democracy Work

LWV Charleston Area Diversity and Inclusion Policy

Diversity and Inclusion Policy

The League of Women Voters of the Charleston Area is an organization fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in principle and in practice. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to the League's current and future commitment to engaging all individuals, households, communities, and policy makers in creating a more perfect democracy.

There shall be no barriers to full participation in this organization on the basis of gender, gender identity, ethnicity, race, age, sexual orientation, culture, religion, belief system, marital status, parental status, socioeconomic status, language, accent, ability status, mental health, education, work, physical appearance, political perspective, and/or any other characteristic that can be identified as recognizing or illustrating diversity.

We commit to deliberate efforts to ensure the LWVCA is a place where differences are welcomed, different perspectives are respectfully heard, and every individual feels a sense of belonging and inclusion. We commit to working actively to challenge and respond to bias, harassment, and discrimination.
