We believe that the diversity of our community is a fundamental strength of our county. Our mission is best fulfilled when we embrace diversity as a value and a practice. We maintain that achieving diversity requires an enduring commitment to inclusion that must find full expression in our organizational culture, values, norms and behaviors. Throughout our work, we will support diversity in all of its forms, encompassing, but not limited to age, disability status, economic circumstance, ethnicity, gender, race, religion and sexual orientation. Leading by example, we aspire to make diversity a core and abiding strength of the nonprofit sector. (Americans with Disabilities Act, 1990)
