Inclusive Excellence (IE) is the recognition that the success of the SCA is dependent on how well it values, engages and includes the rich diversity in membership. It is an approach that requires awareness, education, and commitment.
Inclusive Excellence in the SCA requires the DEI Office to ask Kingdoms whether underrepresented members are also underserved. A goal of IE is to ensure that all members are experiencing an inclusive and equitable SCA (AACU, 2017).
Inclusive Excellence goes beyond accepting differences; our goal is to actively cultivate an organizational environment where members of every background and experience can thrive. At minimum, this means respecting all regardless of race, ethnicity, age, class, gender, sexual orientation, physical abilities/qualities, religion, nationality, or any other difference.
