Statement on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
OneSource Center acknowledges the pain felt among people of color across the nation in response to the severe and numerous historically-rooted social injustices. We reaffirm our desire for change that bolsters the dignity of each individual and the chance for a better tomorrow for all. OneSource Center applauds the work of regional and national leaders and nonprofits striving to end systemic social, racial, and economic injustices – and we are proud to support them.
As a positive contributor to our multicultural community, OneSource Center embraces diversity. We know that this commitment is invaluable to fulfilling our mission ‘to strengthen the impact of nonprofits serving the Greater Cincinnati community.’ In fact, it is one of our six core values.
As an inclusive organization, we pledge to:
– listen attentively to understand,
– look inward to see how we can make an impact,
– work deliberately to help vision a path to positive change.
Together, we will be successful in creating a more equitable community for all citizens.
OneSource Center’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion* Objective
To create, nurture, and sustain an inclusive culture where differences leverage the talents of clients, staff, volunteers, and the nonprofit community by embedding multicultural awareness and advocacy in all services and opportunities that OneSource offers.
*In referencing ‘diversity, equity and inclusion,’ OneSource is referring to the unique aspects of a person’s identity, (including their age, ability, class, education, family structure, gender identity, marital status, military status, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status) with priority attention to race and ethnicity, to most fully support the success of all people in the workplace and community.
