At a time when Diversity, Equity, Inclusion is a priority for most non-profits, it can be hard to know where to start: Updating policies? Building culture? Solving specific problems?
The Wayside Equity Training Center builds on Wayside Youth & Family Services own experiences as a human services agency and non-profit to offer customized trainings that are designed to advance the diversity, equity and inclusion goals of its partners. Wayside Equity Training Center helps organizations better understand how diversity, equity and inclusion can become foundational in their daily work. Ultimately, program participants address racism in all its forms, creating more effective, efficient, and equitable non-profits.
The work of Equity is not only the right thing – today’s workforce understands that inequity is the roadblock for many of the youth & families we serve. The work ahead for social work and community care is understanding how to be anti-racist, as well as support both clients and employees in creating cultures that make room for everyone.
Our mission is to empower organizations to advance equity.
