Diversity And Inclusion

We strive to be a model of diversity and inclusion, with our Board of Trustees, staff, and volunteers reflecting the many faces, cultures, and walks of life that proudly make up our communities. We respect, value, and celebrate the unique attributes, characteristics, and perspectives that make each person who they are.  We also believe that bringing diverse individuals together allows us to collectively and more effectively address the issues that face our communities. It is our aim, therefore, that our partners, strategies, and investments reflect these core values.

Membership Certification
