WHAT WE DO:

Equity + Inclusion
At Zahiya Online, our vision and mission reflect our fundamental belief that all people belong at Zahiya Online and all people have the right to move, dance, better themselves, and enjoy caring for their body.
We celebrate the visible and invisible qualities that make each person unique, including race, gender identity, size, age, sexuality, class, ability, religion, national origin, and other identities.
Longtime Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion educator, Verna Myers, said: “Diversity is being asked to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.” It is our goal at Zahiya Online to ask everyone to dance.
We commit to aligning our business culture and business practices to be a beacon of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging for all people. At Zahiya Online, a diverse, inclusive, and equitable business is one where all staff and members, whatever their class, size, gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation or identity, education or disability, feels valued and respected.
We strive to:
∆ Provide culturally sensitive education regarding the history of dance and dance styles.
∆ Incorporate diversity, inclusion, and equity principles, or our organization’s action and business plans.
∆ See diversity, inclusion, and equity as critical to ensure the well-being of our business and world wide communities we serve.
∆ Acknowledge and dismantle any inequities within our policies, programs, and services, and continually work to update, grow, and change.
∆ Explore potential underlying, unquestioned assumptions that interfere with our inclusiveness.
∆ Commit to a nondiscriminatory approach and provide equal opportunity for employment and membership at Zahiya Online.
∆ Donate a portion of our profits to a scholarship program to ensure underserved communities and all people have access to our services.
At Zahiya Online, we believe black lives matter, love is love, women’s rights are human rights, no person is illegal, and all bodies are beautiful.
