United By Differences: Valuing Inclusive Leadership and Diversity!
Change is the only constant we can count on with total certainty! In our 21st century global world, change is happening faster than ever before in history, almost overnight. This changing and diverse world must be reflective inside our departments, agencies and organizations if we are to remain relevant and equitable in our services. From county to state level, Oregon recognizes the value of preparing and equipping its citizens to become inclusive & culturally competent leaders and capitalize on the opportunities that diversity brings. To embrace and value the diversity our state, country and world have to offer, we must first embrace and value it in ourselves. It’s time to understand and live up to the reality that diversity and unity do not have to be mutually exclusive.
