Inclusive Workplaces

When our educators are safe, welcome, and included, they can focus on educating our students. Here's what you need to know to about equity and the law at work.
Inclusive Workplaces NEA
Educators at the 2019 ESP Pre-Conference tackle equity and inclusion in schools and the community.

We are committed to ensuring equity and inclusion in the workplace for all our members by providing the tools to recognize and respond to discrimination. For when our educators can thrive, our students can, too.

Although much progress has been made, Arizona’s schools are not free from stereotypes, bigotry, and hate. The struggle for human and civil rights must continue until every individual, every employee, and every student is treated with respect and dignity. AEA is proud to be part of that effort. Employment discrimination issues can be complex and confusing. Contact AEA for additional resources to help school employees assess their rights regarding employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, age, and sexual orientation.
