Our Comittment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion 

Helping all people in recovery stay in recovery

Our Core Values include: 

We ensure diversity and inclusion

We actively pursue diverse representation in all our programming, including diversity of thought and recovery path. We believe diversity makes us stronger and will lead to a thriving organization that represents the recovery community of Central Kentucky. You are always welcome! 

Our Plan to Live This Out:

We have: 

  • Retained an outside consultant, Dr. Dietra Hawkins, a Cultural Competency specialist
  • Hosted a town hall to listen and learn (please see video below)
  • Hosted a recovery focused listening session

In 2021 we plan to:

  • Implement the Annie E. Casey Racial Analysis tool for all meetings and projects
  • Conduct listening sessions to lift the voices of communities of color
  • Create a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Board Committee 
  • Align our mission and vision with a diversity lens
  • Create a staff book club
     

These actions will in no way solve the problems associated with racism, sexism, or other inequity for marginalized populations within the our organization and or the recovery movement. Our goal is to listen, learn, amend our mistakes, move forward, and continue to grow in recovery.
