Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We are committed to social justice, health equity, and access to quality services for all. We work in spaces formed and maintained by systematic oppression, impacting our employees and those we serve. We strive to end, repair, and fight against these inequities and injustices by challenging the systems, laws, policies and key stakeholders in the health and human services industries which threaten diversity dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, language, age, abilities, caregiver status, poverty, health access and literacy, religion, citizenship status, and veteran status.
