Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Stepping Stones Center believes that transformative relationships are key to unlocking a child’s potential as well as supporting the professional development of each staff member who serves as part of our dynamic team. We succeed in doing this by including in our strategies, ingraining in our culture, and reflecting in our behaviors, principles and practices of diversity, equity, and inclusion. As a result, we break down immediate and systemic barriers to create and sustain equitable outcomes.

As we grow, we plan to ensure the recruitment of diverse candidates across positions available within our organization. We aim to increase diversity in representation of race, body types, and age in visual materials on our website, annual reports, and cross-platform communications. We are working with our internal and external partners to assess their commitment to diversity and inclusion practices within their own organizations. We want to actively collaborate with those who share our vision for creating a more inclusive world.
