How can we examine our organizations’ climate to improve service delivery for participants and work environment for staff?

Creating programs where everyone has a sense of equity, belonging, and acceptance can be very challenging. Today, equity and inclusion are words that are tied together so often that they seem synonymous and are used interchangeably. The creation of equity within an organization should not be confused with the creation of an inclusive environment. Not knowing the difference can lead us into focusing on the wrong efforts!

This Eastern Regional Summit is designed to lead organizations into a space of learning and discussion about best practices, the challenges of creating equitable programming, and developing inclusion practices within human services organizations.
