purpose of this document is threefold:
To facilitate communication of the BFE Principles of Diversity and
Inclusion through a common language, English.
To lend support to BFE missions, policies and programs, which promote
diversity and inclusion throughout ongoing education in the field
To meet the current and expanded role of BFE in promoting diversity
and inclusion now and in the future.
Biofeedback Foundation of Europe, in its leadership role, will constantly
strive to be a model of diversity and inclusion. The BFE Board of Directors,
faculty, staff, students and members, therefore, must resemble the diversity
that is so proudly reflected in the breadth of the Foundation’s
and inclusion are critical components of success in a global context
and in an ever changing world. The Biofeedback Foundation of Europe’s
ability to promote effective inclusion practices is necessary to fulfill
our mission and to the quality of the biofeedback education system.
BFE’s value of diversity is embedded in respect and appreciation
of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, nationality, physical abilities,
age, sexual orientation, behaviors and perspectives of each individual.
To be inclusive is to collectively utilize the unique talents and perspectives
from the diverse array of individuals that constitute the biofeedback
education community and its partners. Thus, the Biofeedback Foundation
of Europe believes it should reflect its representation in the population
and the communities which it will serve. Diversity within faculty, members,
researchers, and educators will play a critical role in the professional
development of a culturally competent field for the future.
Biofeedback of Europe strongly endorses the continuous use of practices
that achieve excellence through diversity and inclusion.
