Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.

Embracing Diversity

Building on our legacy of quality advocacy, we acknowledge the need to understand, respect, and celebrate diversity including race, gender, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and the presence of sensory, mental, or physical disability. We also value diversity of viewpoints, life experiences, talents and ideas.

A diverse CASA/GAL network helps us to better understand and promote the well-being of the children we serve. Embracing diversity makes us better advocates by providing fresh ideas and perspectives for problem solving in our multicultural world, enabling us to respond to each child’s unique needs.

A Word from Gloria Kelley, Executive Director

Our program is dedicated and committed to establishing a culturally diverse environment inclusive of ALL people. We serve 100% of ALL children and seek to foster a workplace that attracts the best talent, creates an inclusive culture, and values diversity of life experiences/perspectives. What is Culture, Diversity and Inclusion? • Culture…the set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution or organization. • Diversity… an instance of being composed of differing elements or qualities. • Inclusion… involvement and empowerment, where the inherent worth and dignity of all people are recognized. We now invite you to watch the two videos below.
