Each month, SACI will release a “Word of the Month.” Each word has been thoughtfully considered and encouraged to further explore as it relates to individuals’ professional and personal capacity.


November 2017 – Internalized Superiority: when members of a privileged group internalize the dominant social messages of superiority about their group and accept their group’s socially superior status as normal and deserved.


September 2017 – Lesbian: an identity term for a female-identified person who is attracked to other female-identified people.


January 2017 – Inclusion: when members of diverse social and cultural groups are actively included and the dignity of all people is respected so everyone can thrive and reach their fullest potential. Inclusive organizations engage in intentional policies and practices that fully value different perspectives and reflect the interest of diverse members throughout all levels and aspects of the organization. Full inclusion implies dialogue and sharing of power between members.
