Commitment to Diversity
The Board of Directors and senior leadership recognize that the diversity of the community we serve must be reflected in every aspect of our organization in order for Wilder to have the greatest impact with those we serve. Our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and cultural competence is because of our mission and is essential for our success.
We focus on adapting our behaviors to see and accept employees, clients, partners, and community members who have different perspectives than our own. We understand that society has created advantages for certain groups and not others; we find ways to see and change how we are making decisions that impact marginalized or disadvantaged groups in unintended ways.
As an organization, we welcome the complexity that results because of the many differences that exist among groups in one workplace: race, class, sexual orientation, ability, gender, etc. We believe our diversity adds value and makes us more effective and successful in meeting our mission.
