A commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equality.
We believe in the equality, dignity and worth of every person, and therefore welcome all regardless of race, religion, nationality, ethnicity, culture, disability, gender, sexual orientation, and philosophical beliefs.
At Medford Leas our commitment to diversity flows from our common Quaker identity and values. Friends believe that each human life is sacred — that there is “That of God” in every person. This conviction has led to more than three centuries of Quaker action to promote equality, respect for differences, and the dignity of all people.
The Estaugh, the governing board of Medford Leas, has a commitment to diversity and inclusion.
For all those who desire to live, work, serve and participate with us, we actively strive to:
- Be free of myths and stereotypes;
- Foster an appreciation of individuality;
- Adopt and apply policies and practices that uphold the rights, dignity, and equality of all persons without regard to race, culture, religious and philosophical belief, ethnicity, disability, gender, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status; and,
- Ensure that all internal and external interaction will be carried out in a way expressive of these principles.
The Medford Leas Resident Association Diversity Committee furthers the mission of enhancing diversity with the community.
