This work is done through cultivation of strategic partnerships, and education of internal and external stakeholders. We will do this by:

Supports the development of a workforce that encompasses the diversity of the communities we serve while cultivating a culture that rooted diversity, equity , inclusion and belonging

Facilitates the creation of shared frameworks to ensure equity is considered in all aspects of our operations, including but not limited to program development and implementation, budgeting, procurement and community engagement

Provides insights training, coaching and technical assistance to internal and external stakeholders, including but not limited to supporting working groups

Strengthens relationships with our community partners, to ensure they are reflected and respected within our operations, and have equitable access to services and resources
