Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Interfaith Caring Ministries is committed to fostering and celebrating a culture of diversity and inclusion within our staff, board, and the clients we serve. The collective sum of individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, and talent that all employees, board members, and ministry leaders invest in their work represents a significant part of our organizational culture, reputation, and achievements.
ICM embraces each difference in age, race, ethnicity, disability, family or marital status, gender, language, national origin, political affiliation, religion, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics.
ICM also strives to cultivate a culture of equity. ICM believes equity is advanced through the implementation of policies, practices, attitudes, and cultural messages that prevent differential outcomes based on the differences among people. This requires a continuous reevaluation of organizational norms, and a commitment to eliminating policies, practices, and systems that perpetuate inequity, so that all people are fully welcomed, valued, respected, and heard.
