Diversity Statement

“Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible – the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.”     – Virginia Satir

CAIR-Nepal adopts the diversity values of the multilingual, multi-ethnic, and multi-cultural Nepalese society, whose core value is unity in diversity [सयौं थुँगा फूलका हामी, एउटै माला नेपाली...]. Therefore, CAIR-Nepal staunchly upholds these culturally rooted principles of diversity and inclusion. CAIR-Nepal is a firm believer that individuals from various walks of life, cultures, and backgrounds bring a unique perspective, and that is necessary for innovation. CAIR-Nepal is also firmly committed to the right to fair treatment and equal opportunity, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, ethnicity, or opinion held. Furthermore, CAIR-Nepal is committed to providing opportunities to the underrepresented and protecting the vulnerable.
