barriers to resources and opportunities so that all individuals and communities
can participate fully. If injustices occur, we aim for restorative justice that
strengthens the community and prevents similar harms from occurring in future.
EQUITY Allocating resources to ensure everyone has access to the same opportunities and recognising that advantages and barriers — the ‘isms’— exist.
DIVERSITY All the differences between us based on which we experience advantages or encounter barriers to opportunities. We believe our differences should be celebrated and contribute to the rich fabric of our community.
INCLUSION Fostering a sense of belonging by centering, valuing, and amplifying the voices, perspectives and styles of those who experience more barriers based on their identities.
