InterCommunity’s Racial/Ethnic Equity Initiative (REEI) continues to move along on its journey to make us all more knowledgeable and understanding of racial equity, and to take actions to ensure that InterCommunity is an anti-racist organization. We are on this journey together and it has been challenging and healing on many different levels.
We have completed our staff and Board of Directors surveys and will continue in the future with surveys for community partners and clients/ patients to get as much feedback as we can. From feedback we have received, we have developed 2 major task forces: “Organizational Culture” and” Equity in training and leadership opportunities.” We are excited to get started on these in January. Much appreciation to the Initiative for all of the work it has done and continues to do on this most important issue. They continue to be bold and brave in all they do.
