Sobre nosotros

Nuestra misión

New Directions Center es una organización sin fines de lucro que trabaja para reducir el impacto de la violencia de la pareja íntima, el asalto sexual, la trata de personas y el acecho a través de la defensa centrada en los sobrevivientes, los servicios de apoyo, la educación comunitaria y la concientización.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

New Directions Center’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy is an integral part of the agency’s mission and shapes our vision of building an organization that attracts and leverages diversity in our staff and strives for respect and inclusion throughout the workplace and in the communities we serve.

As the foundation of our organization’s overarching strategy, our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy can be broken down into three primary lines of action:

  • Attracting and onboarding – To create a workforce that is broadly reflective of the larger community and the clients we serve.

  • Engaging and developing – To support our employees in building the skills and capacity to work in an inclusive manner with one another and with the people we serve.

  • Building the culture – To create a welcoming workplace in which employees’ unique characteristics, skills, and experiences are respected, valued, and celebrated.

We recognize that a safe and respectful work environment where everyone’s contributions are encouraged and valued in equal measure is also reflective of our belief that when one person thrives, we all thrive.
