The Pledge

Take the Step Up pledge today!

I understand that my attitude and my perspective make my world what it is. I choose to cultivate an attitude of gratitude and empathy in each and every encounter. While I know it will not always be easy, I commit to the challenge. I commit to change.

It is in this spirit that I pledge to:


    • BE courageous in my honesty and my truth.
    • TRUST myself, my intentions and the goodness of others.
    • WORK toward curiosity and not in judgment.
    • PARTICIPATE with good intentions.
    • BUILD a diverse culture inside myself and my community.
    • LEAD by example even when it feels uncomfortable.

Sometimes our steps will be big and bold and other times they will be small and soft. Both kinds of steps take a brave heart, are necessary and important. In fact, some of the smallest steps create the biggest impact on our growth.

I pledge to Step Up today and every day for an equitable world.
