Episode 2: Inclusivity Matters

 

This podcast is provided to ACSA by Lozano Smith, an ACSA Partner4Purpose


 

Inclusivity is a mandate for all public entities – to create a positive, welcoming environment for all types of people and treat them fairly and equally.  The government must also be neutral with respect to politics and religion.  However, the rise of social justice movements in recent years have led public entities to carefully re-consider their policies, practices, and programs.  Thus, public entities walk the narrow path of affirming the rights of all without expressing support for a particular political viewpoint or ignoring systemic and procedural biases.  This podcast will discuss how local governments and school districts can act to work on providing an inclusive workplace and/or campus without limiting individual opinions and viewpoints.
