US laws and regulations are important to us, but we seek to extend our reach beyond the minimum required by law. Diversity is a precious resource that, fortunately, is abundant and readily available. At Bridges To Hope, “diversity” is more than an idea, it is a way of life. Diversity, equity, and inclusion all play critical roles in our daily operations here. For years, we have invested our time, energy, and efforts to address issues that affect our overall health, education, and overall quality of life for those in our community, especially among the formerly incarcerated we serve. We make the most of strategies that increase our understanding of best practices and address community disparities.
We consistently review our grantmaking, outreach, communications, internal operations, staffing, and board makeup to examine inherent biases we may not be aware of to ensure Bridges To Hope can sufficiently support a community in which we all can thrive. Our commitment to equity ensures we support policies that benefit the community, with no exceptions. We challenge ourselves not only to look beyond ourselves, but, if necessary, to alter operations in accordance with fair and forward thinking. Inclusion then guides us toward decisions that create an equitable dynamic among all groups, making them feel motivated and valued on an individual and group level. And when community members feel motivated and valued, whole populations become healthier, livelier, and inspired to change the world.
