The three stars emblazoned upon the band shine brilliantly to remind us to become proficient in the use of Research, Study and Tolerance, the only weapons which will effectively ward off the attacks of our worst enemies, Tradition, Ignorance and Prejudice. [...] The scholar who is not fortified with Tolerance, or open-mindedness, is certain to be conquered by Prejudice. - The Ritual
Our Commitment to DEIA
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility are important to our Members, our leadership and our mission. We are committed to educating, supporting and evolving to meet the needs and expectations of all of our Members.
Resources Available Now
We want to offer opportunities for self-reflection, listening, and open dialogue for those who are leaders and allies. These resources are the first step to opening that discussion. The National Council, in conjunction and consultation with our DEI Consultants Inclusion Strategy Solutions, has created a document listing organizations that are able to provide up-to-date and informative content and suggestions for education, reading, watching and more. Please know the resources listed in the document below are not exhaustive and up to date as of this posting.
