Equity, Diversion and Inclusion (EDI) Statement

The Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition has a strong and steadfast commitment to ensuring that diversity and inclusion are integrated into the policies, procedures and practices used to carry out our mission. This commitment extends throughout the Coalition workforce, board of directors, clients, volunteers, and other stakeholders.

At the Coalition, diversity is a broad concept that encompasses all the differences that employees bring to work. Diversity, therefore, includes the traditional focus around race and gender, but also includes diversity of thought, ideas, backgrounds, and experiences. Inclusion, one of the Coalition’s core values, is the leveraging and engagement of every employee’s unique strengths and talents so that each individual can contribute to his or her full potential. Diversity coupled with inclusion is a long-term business strategy that will help fuel the innovative outcomes and continual improvement necessary for our future success.

EQUITY – Equity is about ensuring fairness and respect. It means employees feel supported, valued, trusted and able to achieve their personal best, and it means that all stakeholders are treated equally. Equity encompasses legal obligations and requirements for non-discrimination, civil rights, reasonable accommodations and equal employment opportunity.
