Diversity


Diversity in B.C. schools is an overarching concept that reflects a philosophy of equitable participation and an appreciation of the contributions of all people. It is a concept that refers both to our uniqueness as individuals and to our sense of belonging or identification within a group or groups.

Diversity refers to the ways in which we differ from each other. Some of these differences may be visible (e.g. Race, ethnicity, gender, age, ability), while others are less visible (e.g. Culture, ancestry, language, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, socio-economic background).
