Our Commitment to DEI

Our Commitment to DEI

Our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) encompasses our Board of Directors, our staff, volunteers, those we serve, and the community at large. Our DEI initiative takes a structured, intentional, and thoughtful approach to achieve equity and inclusion. We strive to infuse DEI principles and action into all we do, including setting policy, establishing procedures, staff recruitment, professional development, service delivery, community participation, and more.

We seek and value lived personal experience and professional expertise, in the form of ongoing focus groups, listening sessions, and committee leadership and participation, to ensure that we are continually living up to our goal of being an equitable, inclusive workplace, provider, and community hub for all.
