Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging
St. Catherine’s Center for Children is committed to employing a diverse and inclusive workforce, one that is truly representative of the diverse communities and populations we serve, while mitigating implicit or unconscious bias.
We respect and appreciate the differences, originality, and the unique identities, perspectives, and characteristics each individual brings to the table. We believe that by increasing access and opportunity for all – especially those who are underrepresented and have been historically disadvantaged – we provide greater opportunities for our team, each employee within that team, and our clients to be more successful.
Our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging is at the very center of our efforts to build and maintain a culture where acceptance and appreciation of everyone is not only spoken about but felt by every, single member of our community.
Our Path Toward DEIB
With this commitment, St. Catherine’s has answered the call to adapt to positive societal changes and forward-thinking initiatives. Here is a timeline of our Agency’s progress:
Recruiting Through A DEIB Lens
St. Catherine’s embraces diversity in thought, background, and experience and insists on equal employment opportunities for all applicants and employees. To this end, we ensure that all employment opportunities are provided to qualified individuals irrespective of race, traits historically associated with race (including, but not limited to, hair texture and protective hairstyles), creed, color, national origin, ancestry/place of birth, religion, age, sex (including pregnancy), reproductive health decision making, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, familial status, veteran status, military status, disability, predisposing genetic characteristics, domestic violence victim status, stalking, or sex offense victim status, or any other basis protected by applicable law.
Our DEIB efforts enhance our ability to accomplish this, while providing a workforce truly reflective of those we serve
