CPSE commitment promotes the advancement of these key principles for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We believe diversity is an integral experience that includes diverse expertise, experiences, and perspectives. This is expressed in many forms, including, and not limited to culture, career, race and ethnicity, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, language, region, national origin, religion, age, disability, political perspective, and veteran status. We strive for ongoing education, learning, and self-awareness.
Access to CPSE programs and resources to advance in a fire and emergency services career are achievable. We are dedicated to working actively to remove any bias while mitigating barriers to access. We acknowledge that inequity exists and commit to challenge the power imbalances and engage in ongoing conversations that explore solutions to removing such barriers through our governance, programs, and operations. We intend to utilize reliable data and information to impact our decisions.
We aim to create an environment where people feel connected and valued for sharing all of their experiences. Allowing for connections that are individually, regionally, nationally, and internationally supported and enhancing the involvement of those underrepresented across the profession is essential.
