INCLUSIVITY STATEMENT & BIAS INCIDENT REPORT
WACUHO embraces the benefits that are derived from the inclusion of diversity in the Association. Members make significant contributions from all areas of higher education and at every level of responsibility. Various perspectives shared by our members, inclusive of ethnicity, age, gender, religious preference, sexual orientation, differing abilities, race, gender expression, socioeconomic status, or spirituality add a dynamic which enriches the membership and mission of the Association. WACUHO encourages all to actively participate in its programs, events and activities. WACUHO welcomes and values all perspectives and empowers all members to feel valued.
When a bias incident is submitted, follow up may be a necessary part of the process to address a situation. Depending on the incident, this may mean several individuals are contacted for more understanding of the situation. Many times this will involve gathering more information from a person who has reported an incident of bias if possible (in the case of anonymity that would not be an option) as well as from any witnesses to a bias incident.
The Officer for Equity and Inclusion and the President will receive the submissions and will follow-up to address the incident.
