DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
Within The Boston Club, diversity is the recognition of and valuing of differences among groups, including and not limited to race, religion, class, age, gender, sexual orientation, mental and physical challenges, and work/life balance issues. Inclusion is the action of diversity, how we live, our respect for others and how we effectively utilize our leadership to promote the advancement of all women.
A diverse membership ensures the richness and vibrancy of ideas, topics and approaches. Ultimately, diversity and inclusion enhance the quality of experience, round out the membership and develop leadership depth.
