Alternatives’ Statement on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Alternatives is an anti-racism organization committed to creating an environment where all employees are valued. Therefore, we will purposefully identify, discuss and challenge issues such as power, privilege and prejudice and the impact they have on Alternatives’ employees, agency partners, and participants. We will challenge ourselves to understand any inequities we may discover within Alternatives and gain a better understanding of ourselves during this purposeful process. Being an anti-racism organization is an imperative journey and in-depth process that requires change on multiple levels in order to create an equitably diverse, inclusive, and affirming organization, which in the end leaves no room for racism, prejudice, or discrimination, in any shape or form.
