At our VA World Conference, we are committed to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) in all aspects of our work. We recognize the unique challenges and experiences that women of color face in the remote professional industry, and we are dedicated to being inclusive of all women while curating content that highlights and focuses on the pain points of women of color.
We strive to create a safe and supportive environment that values and respects the diversity of our community. We aim to provide educational and training opportunities that address the specific needs and concerns of women of color in the remote professional industry.
Our commitment to DEIB is reflected in our programming, messaging, and partnerships. We seek to amplify the voices of women of color and provide a platform for their stories and experiences to be heard. We work to create a culture of belonging where all women feel empowered to succeed as remote professionals, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or background.
We recognize that our work towards DEIB is ongoing and requires constant reflection, learning, and action. We are committed to continuously improving our efforts and creating a more equitable and inclusive environment for all women in the remote professional industry.
We all have a role to play
What Is Diversity and Inclusion?
The term “diversity” not only refers only to a person’s race but a wide range of elements that make us unique. These include gender, age, religion, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, personality, skill sets, education, national origin, and marital and socioeconomic status. An organization’s “inclusion” is based on its ability to champion these differences so that all are treated equally and feel they are accepted and belong. “Equity,” meanwhile, refers to providing fair treatment, opportunity, and advancement for all, eliminating barriers that may keep them from full participation.
