We believe that diversity, including identity-focused characteristics such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, socioeconomic status, disability, and national origin, is the presence and celebration of difference that enriches our organization. We are committed to cultivating an environment where staff, clients, volunteers and vendors from all backgrounds, cultures, perspectives, and experiences feel welcomed, respected, and empowered.
Furthermore, we acknowledge that fostering diversity is an ongoing journey. We pledge to regularly evaluate our practices, policies, and programs to ensure that they align with our commitment to inclusivity. We encourage open feedback and dialogue from our community as we strive for continuous improvement.
