Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Voices for Children (VFC) is an inclusive organization whose staff and volunteers value, represent, and serve individuals of diverse backgrounds, identities, cultures, and abilities. We embrace the guiding principle that all children should be safe, have a permanent home, and have an opportunity to thrive. In order to provide high quality advocacy and serve the best of interests of children, we are similarly committed to advancing a diverse and inclusive environment for our volunteers and staff. We expect that VFC staff and volunteers hold themselves to these standards.
To that end, Voices for Children will administer its policies, practices, and services without discrimination against the children we serve, our volunteers, or our staff on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, medical condition, marital status, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, genetic information, veteran status, caregiver status, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local laws. We celebrate and value our differences and are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment. Inclusivity and equity are essential components of the advocacy for and protection of the children and families we serve.
Voices for Children is committed to being a diverse and inclusive organization and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
