The Third Circuit Court Diversity and Inclusion Team's Mission: 
"We recognize our common background and respect our unique human experiences. We move forward as an inclusive organization, community and society."
The Court's Diversity & Inclusion Team strives to ensure the values of its diverse bench, staff, and court users are acknowledged and reflected in our delivery of service as well as our work environment.
In that spirit, the team creates and shares a monthly list of various holidays and observations along with some celebration suggestions. We invite our work community and the community at large to contribute.

Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication.
Here are nine tips for interacting with people with autism ...
  1. Please don't hate their shield.
  2. Try not to stare.
  3. Never talk about that person.
  4. No sad faces about them, please.
  5. They are inside bodies that work differently - be patient.
  6. They are real. They are not shells with no inhabitants.
  7. Let them be the best them they can be.
