Inclusiveness Policy

The CBIC Board of Directors recently had a strategic planning retreat, and one of the things we discussed was how important we feel the “Peace in the Parks” policy has been to our philosophy and programming. Further, the Board decided to make the values implied by “Peace in the Parks” more explicit. At our BOD meeting Oct. 8, we voted unanimously to pass the following inclusiveness policy:

“Chester Bowl Improvement Club (CBIC) is deeply committed to providing a diverse, inclusive and respectful environment in the park and in our programs. CBIC is committed to preventing bullying and harassment in our community and
expect all program participants to sign our Peace in the Parks pledge. For both employment and access to programs and activities, the CBIC will not engage in discrimination against any person because of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, disability, or sexual orientation including gender identity.”

Such values have guided our activities all along, but by making them explicit we want to ensure that they continue to guide this organization in the future. Further, by publicizing this policy to all members of our community, we hope to clarify the core values that drive our actions, both in the park and in the broader community.

This inclusiveness policy is being formally integrated with our Standard Operating Procedures. Along with our vision statement, mission statement, and Peace in the Parks policy, it will guide our organization as we continue to serve this community.

I am both proud and humbled to be associated with this organization!

Curt Leitz
President, Chester Bowl Improvement Club
