Our commitment to the essential pursuit of
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Columbusite seeks to embody values, policies, and practices that ensure that all people—including but not limited to those who have been historically underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion—are represented in the development of our content, support of local artists; work to nurture arts accessibility in our community; and the fair distribution of programmatic, and informational resources to our audience.
The Columbusite defines diversity, equity, and inclusion as:
Diversity: Representation across a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and views.
Equity: Fair and equitable treatment, access, opportunity, and engagement for all.
Inclusion: Environment that respects and values all perspectives, especially ensuring that persons within historically underrepresented groups are included and represented.
