The Glow Centre for Sexual and Gender Diversity designates itself as an organization committed to promoting inclusion within the University of Waterloo and in the wider community.

All members of the Glow Centre (executive members, volunteers, and those who access the Centre’s services and events alike) are expected to promote the creation of an inclusive environment for all forms of diversity and identities, including – but not limited to – the queer community. Even within the queer community, trans-negativity, bi-negativity, and sexism surrounding queer identities continue to act as barriers to a fully inclusive environment.

The Glow Centre aims to be a leader among queer campus organizations in ensuring that its spaces are safe and inclusive. The Glow Centre is open and inviting to individuals of all sexual orientations and sexual/gender identities, and is also continuously seeking to improve its services and events to recognize and include awareness and education for all queer communities.

The Glow Centre recognizes that other forms of oppression such as racism, classism, ageism, ableism, religious prejudice, xenophobia, and others exist in the greater community. Those who represent Glow as volunteers and executives, and those who access the services and events, are expected to be respectful of all opinions and beliefs that any individual may hold. However, it is important to note that the expression of opinions, ideas, as well as actions, that are counter-productive to the creation of safe spaces within the Glow Centre or at the Glow Centre’s events are discouraged and will not be tolerated.
