Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Noble
We build diverse teams because they perform better and get the best results for our students. We believe staff at all levels of the organization should reflect our students and communities. We bring others in and make people from all backgrounds feel included in all spaces to create a culture of value and belonging. We share ideas, input, and perspectives, and we seek diverse voices and bring in traditionally excluded individuals and perspectives to arrive at the best decisions. We actively seek understanding to avoid assumptions and bias in decision-making. We examine ourselves to ensure that our practices and beliefs lead to equitable outcomes for all.
