Leading for Equity
Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Statement
Best Start Region 2, a partnership funded by First 5 LA and stewarded by Community Health Councils, with leading community-based partners, Girls Club of Los Angeles, Poder Consulting Group, and Coachman Moore & Associates, is committed to advancing the practices of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion to achieve sustainable policy and systems-change across the South Los Angeles region.
Best Start Region 2, and any associated members or leaders will embrace this commitment to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion by welcoming all community members regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, national origin, veteran status, social-economic class, religion or any other perceived difference. It is important for this to be a shared mutual commitment as we strive for the common goal of creating positive outcomes that benefit families and children.
Our experience demonstrates that bringing people together from various backgrounds and cultures drives solutions by leveraging different points of view. Respecting everyone’s background, culture, and life experiences are essential to collective agency and power in advancing policy and systems change.
