DEIC Commitment

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Cultural Competence (DEIC) Commitment Statement

Created by the Cristo Rey Network national office team
September 2019

The Cristo Rey Network national office, recognizing the dignity of each human being, collaborates with our school communities and partners to foster an education that assists in the alleviation of poverty, the promotion of justice, and the empowerment of the individual. Rooted in Catholic values, our work is our hopeful response to the historic and systemic inequity that limits the full and unhindered realization of the human potential inherent in all communities.

The Cristo Rey Network national office team commits to:

  • seeking, embracing, and celebrating diversity at all levels by building a team that is reflective of the communities we serve
  • continuously improving our organizational health by practicing policy and procedures that provide an equitable, engaging, and rewarding experience for all staff members
  • welcoming varied religious expressions and non-expressions as valuable to our community

We live out our commitments by recognizing our own implicit and explicit biases, creating structures for open dialogue and opportunities for growth, and collectively assessing our organizational progress.
