Dear Collaborative Family,
In light of events that occurred in 2020, we have taken time to reflect on our position in the community as a resource for each of you. We feel that it is critical to include resources that encourage social justice, racial equity, and inclusion in the organizations we come in contact with in Cobb County. Our organization stands for improved outcomes for children and families - ALL children and families. The populations we serve, who are often the most vulnerable and underrepresented, deserve culturally competent care.
We have taken time to consider how we will move forward in perpetuating race, equity, and inclusion discussions and programming. We are aware that actions speak louder than words, and empty promises to become more inclusive will just not cut it. That is why we decided to offer a curriculum called “Creating Inclusive Boards for Communities.” The Board Pro is conducting two virtual information sessions to help community stakeholders to lean in and move towards creating environments that are diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
We hope that this first step towards developing our resource capacity in this area is something that lands close to home and that you will take full advantage of this opportunity. Education and awareness is the first step towards becoming more empathetic towards our fellow man. As we continue in our efforts, please feel welcome to offer feedback, questions, or resources that you would like to share with our members. We are all in this work together.
Thank you, to each one of you, for making this world a better place.
