Our DEIB Promise
DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION, AND BELONGING
In order to truly embody the community we envision, it is imperative that we extend a warm welcome to all individuals in a manner that makes them feel valued and appreciated. We firmly believe that recognizing one's own identity, culture, and values within the community and feeling included, appreciated, and welcomed are all interconnected. This is precisely why Visit Lenawee places such a high value on diversity, equity, and inclusivity.
At Visit Lenawee, we already make it a point to recognize and celebrate the many wonderful aspects of the Lenawee County community on a daily basis. However, we are now taking things a step further by approaching this with greater intention and a more inclusive perspective that embraces diversity in all its forms.
This is a journey that we are committed to undertaking. Our dedication to fostering inclusivity across all aspects of identity, including race, gender, age, religion, experience, and ability, propels us forward each and every day. We are determined to ensure that our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusivity is more than just a set of words, but a tangible reality that is felt by all who engage with Visit Lenawee.
