Statement of Diversity and Inclusion

The mission of the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts is to encourage and advocate the visual and performing arts by providing a forum where diverse audiences can actively participate in cultural experiences. The Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts is committed ​to supporting the economic vitality of Suffolk by enhancing the life experiences of our citizens and visitors.

We believe that our mission is most effectively fulfilled through a commitment to inclusiveness as a core value and practice. We maintain that building and sustaining diversity requires an ongoing commitment to inclusion that must find full expression in our organizational culture, values, norms, and behaviors.

Throughout our work, we support diversity across all lines of difference, including age, economic circumstance, ethnicity, sex, race, range of ability, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity/expression. We aim to lead by example, viewing and encouraging diversity as a fundamental and abiding strength of the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts.

The Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts recognizes that its effectiveness will be enhanced, and its mission well served, when the practice of inclusion is reflected in all aspects of the organization.
