Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access
LEX Language Project Board of Directors, Staff, and Fellows are committed to creating a positive community that is welcoming to all people. Following our mission of promoting multilingualism and intercultural understanding, our goal is to increase access to underrepresented communities and empower all generations with the strength needed to succeed in this global world. We hope the work of IDEA, our committee focusing on Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access, will help us to live out our LEX / Hippo ideals of openness and inclusion for all.
We welcome members and alumni who are passionate about these issues to get involved. The commitment is 1-2 hours per month for one year. Members of underrepresented groups and allies are particularly encouraged to apply. Please email us for more information.
Inclusion Thoughts, ideas, and perspectives of all individuals are valued.
Diversity Different beliefs, backgrounds, and social identities are represented.
Equity Differences in the circumstances and needs for participation are recognized.
Access Opportunities exist for all to participate.
