Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Sanneh Foundation throughout its history has asserted the dignity of all people without exception.  Sanneh also recognizes that individuals, families and communities are diverse.  Sanneh values and respects its diversity and chooses to be inclusive through its acceptance of all individuals regardless of race, creed, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, military status, pregnancy, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, familial status, with regard to public assistance, membership or activity in a local commission, or other legally protected status.  Sanneh asserts that all individuals, without exception, are intrinsically valuable.
