Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We believe all people are equal and worthy of dignity, honor, and full inclusion in community life. Through our work, we seek to support more equitable opportunities and access for all community members throughout the New River Valley, recognizing that historic and systemic barriers pose ongoing and complex challenges.
Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion drives us to consider all who live in our communities. We recognize and support community-determined solutions and priorities and celebrate the strengths of diverse groups that contribute to a more just and affirming culture.
We seek diverse representation in our decision-making. And we evaluate the outcomes of our investments, grant-making, and collaborative efforts in light of our mission and commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
