Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy. 

The Transology Association Inc., is committed to creating an environment that is diverse, inclusive, and equitable where all staff, clients, partners, vendors, and board members are treated with respect, dignity and equality. 
No one person is better then any other person no matter who they are. 
All people are created equal by God and should be treated equal in all aspects of Life

For the purposes of the above statement, 

Diversity refers to race, gender, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual identity, familial status, age, disability and economic and social inequality status;

Inclusion is valuing, respecting, and encouraging the full participation of each individual in the life and leadership of the organization; 

Equity is a process that ensures all people have the opportunity to contribute, develop, and grow despite historical, structural, legislative, racial, and economic and social inequalities.

We are an organization that celebrates the rich diversity of the City and County of York, Pennsylvania and all surrounding localities. 

We will not tolerate discrimination, biases, harassment, or bullying of any kind. Regardless of race, economic and social inequality status, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, nationality, gender, or marital status, we are an organization that celebrates the richness of our community.

As an organization and Board of Directors, we agree to be guided by these principles and pledge that they will be reflected in our vision, mission, strategic planning, programming, governance, and board composition. Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion extends to our staff, our partners, our clients and programs we develop and support.

Economic inequality is the unequal distribution of income and opportunity between different groups in society. It is a concern in almost all countries around the world and often people are trapped in poverty with little chance to climb up the social ladder.

Social inequality results from a society organized by hierarchies of class, race, and gender that broker access to resources and rights in ways that make their distribution unequal. It can manifest in a variety of ways, like income and wealth inequality, unequal access to education and cultural resources, and differential treatment by the police and judicial system, among others.
