We at Friends of Youth, are excited to announce a significant transition within our agency that marks a milestone in our journey towards becoming an anti-racist multicultural agency. The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) will be operating under the purview of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO). This transition signifies our commitment to fostering awareness, responsibility, and equity throughout the agency.
By centralizing the DEI efforts under the CEO's office, it emphasizes diversity, equity, and inclusion as an integral part of who we are as an agency.
Our commitment to creating an equitable and inclusive workplace and community is unwavering, and we recognize this is an ongoing journey. We value our employees, youth and young adults that we serve, and our community, as we work towards a shared vision of a more diverse and equitable agency. We look forward to embracing the opportunity to build a stronger and more inclusive Friends of Youth community.
