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 practicing inclusivity and equity.

It is in this spirit that I agree to the following:


    • to be courageous in my honesty and my truth.
    • to participate with good intentions in this safe place where we can grow and flourish.
    • to be open to new ways of seeing the world and of sharing the world with others.
    • to work towards curiosity and not in judgment.
    • to trust myself, my intentions and the goodness of others.
    • to build a beautiful and diverse culture inside myself and my community.
    • to step up boldly and lead courageously 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.
