Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging
Adult & Child Health strives to create an environment for staff and clients that is diverse, inclusive, and honors all people’s experiences.
Support various DEIB campaigns and initiatives at Adult & Child Health through our Bonfire apparel store. A portion of all proceeds will be donated back to A&C to support each group’s mission.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Commission
To affirm our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, Adult & Child Health has implemented a DEIB Commission. This group of staff members was selected to collaborate with current DEIB focus groups and to give a more structured space to identify and incorporate new DEIB initiatives.
The DEIB Commission created Mission, Vision, and Values statements to direct their efforts within our agency.
Integrated DEI Activities: The Beauty in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity
Adult & Child has embedded culturally-focused activities into monthly Team Leader meetings. These activities are led by a member of the DEIB Commission and then taken back to individual teams and incorporated into staff development conversations.
Our task forces are voluntary employee-led teams that serve as resources for diversity initiatives, program development, cultural celebration, idea implementation, and recruitment.
These teams bring agency-wide value in their efforts to enhance cultural sensitivity and awareness, in addition to supporting agency-related diversity initiatives.
Agency staff are currently represented with LGBTQ+ and Black Cultural Awareness task forces; however, leadership is continually looking to increase the number of resources for additional marginalized groups.
Our Commitment to Our Clients and Staff
“We believe in people and the strength of diversity. We deeply respect the ideas, backgrounds, and lived experiences of those we serve to create safe, inclusive environments where everyone is welcome.”
