on Cultural Diversity

The AARC embraces diversity and multi-culturalism in all of its forms and promotes a professional community established with understanding, respect and cultural competence. The AARC is enriched by the unique differences found among its diverse members, their patients/clients, and other stakeholders. The AARC encourages and promotes a culture where personal and cultural backgrounds are utilized effectively to enhance our profession. The AARC accomplishes this by:
  • Demonstrating sensitivity to all forms of diversity and multiculturalism including, but not limited to: age, gender and gender identity, race, color and ethnicity, nationality and national origin, ancestry, religious affiliation and creed, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, political affiliation, physical and mental abilities, veteran and active armed service status, job responsibilities and experience, education and training.

  • Acknowledging the varied beliefs, attitudes, behaviors and customs of the people that constitute its communities of interest, thereby creating a diverse and multicultural professional environment.

  • Promoting an appreciation for communication between, and understanding among, people with different beliefs and backgrounds.

  • Accommodating the needs of the physically disabled at events and activities.

  • Using multicultural content and gender-neutral references in documents and publications.

  • Promoting diversity education and cultural competence in its professional education programs.

  • Recruiting candidates from under-represented groups for leadership and mentoring programs.
