Andre and our staff at a.m. horizons are committed to promoting the principles of equal opportunity, affirmative action, and multiculturalism where all individuals are valued, respected, provided the opportunity to flourish, and unobstructed in their pursuit of excellence. Our goal is to educate, training and facilitate processes that create workplaces and classroom experiences that promote academic excellence through cultural diversity and are free of intolerance and coercive behaviors. Multiculturalism promotes an understanding that the human experience includes, but is not limited to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, or sexual orientation..
Defining diversity: Diversity is understood as the fact of human difference that makes a difference in how we interact with one another, communities, institutions and
ourselves, relative to developing and respecting human potential, creating a supportive, nurturing climate and environment, and acknowledging legal responsibilities to historical inequalities.
Geographical, political, economic, intellectual and cultural diversity are all intertwined. To heal the harms of the past, to improve our current conditions and provide a future free of bias and discrimination we must look for and offer the dignity and honor in what it means to be human, even when we don't live up to our best selves.
Andre's purpose is to reconnect people to their Dignity and Honor in Being Human.
