Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity
Over the past five years, our Board and staff have consciously focused on deepening our understanding of and commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity. We will continue to leverage our relationships to build a stronger Lorain County.
- We are engaging others within our neighborhoods and community to gain a solid understanding of their needs.
- We are instilling the expectation for our grantees and strategic partners to strive for greater diversity, inclusion, and equity in their work.
- We are actively participating in REI training and workshops with our Board and staff.
