Cultural Sensitivity Statement

At Printed Elegance, we are committed to fostering an environment of inclusiveness, respect, and cultural understanding. We recognize the incredible diversity that enriches our world and shapes the tapestry of human experience. As such, we are dedicated to upholding principles of cultural sensitivity in all aspects of our work.

Some of the images in our collections have aspects that were created in the context of governmental policies, legislation, or cultural bias that may have had a major impact on many people and communities within the United States. They may contain images or descriptions that may be insensitive or inappropriate.

While this information may not reflect current understanding or past experience for any of these individuals or communities, it is provided in an historical context.

These views are not the views of Printed Elegance.

In our efforts to promote cultural sensitivity, we commit to the following principles:

  • Authentic Representation: We strive to accurately represent the diversity of our global community in all our communications, materials, and visuals. We avoid perpetuating stereotypes and clichés, aiming to showcase the multifaceted nature of cultures.
  • Empowerment and Dignity: We celebrate the strengths, achievements, and contributions of individuals and communities from all backgrounds. We promote images and narratives that empower rather than marginalize.

We acknowledge that cultural sensitivity is not a destination, but a continuous journey, and we are committed to learning, adapting, and growing in our pursuit of inclusiveness. By embracing cultural sensitivity, we aim to contribute to a global community where every voice is heard, every story is valued, and every individual is treated with the respect they deserve.
