Committed to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging
“At TrueNorth Wellness Services, our mission to inspire hope and healthy living through behavioral health and wellness services goes hand-in-hand with our desire to create an inclusive community which embraces diversity, celebrates differences, and appreciates each person’s unique background, identity and experience.
From the first moment clients, staff and the community connect with us – whether in person, on the phone or virtually – we want everyone to feel seen, safe and respected.
As such, we are committed to continued learning, empowering staff to embrace and evidence our values, and also to engage and invest in the communities we serve.
We see you. We hear you. We support you.
We stand with you.”
Why have a DEIB statement?
Similar to our mission, vision, and core values, our agency’s DEIB statement provides guidance to the direction the organization. It is not a singular statement, rather, it is a manner of operation and a goal for our staff, programs and organization as a whole.
What comes next?
Our DEIB statement is just the first step in an ongoing process to celebrate, maintain and improve diversity, equity, inclusion & belonging in our organization. As we look at DEIB initiatives in our organization, we recognize this work cannot be done in isolation. We must engage with our staff, clients, and community to truly embrace and practice the values of our statement.
