The fundamental action imperative of diversity is to create an environment, which fosters
an appreciation of the values, skills, and abilities of each individual member. Members
are responsible to each other for promoting an inclusive atmosphere of acceptance and
respect, for demonstrating a commitment to fair and equal opportunity, and for moving

that diversity is not a problem to be solved, but that it is an asset to be developed.
