The Boys & Girls Club of Western Lane County (Club) celebrates and acknowledges the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusivity. We embrace these pillars of excellence as crucial to healthy people and healthy communities. We believe advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in our organization and across our community helps us live up to our values and achieve greater impact.
The Club aspires to be a collaborative, inclusive, and caring community that strives for equity and equal opportunity in everything we do; that creates a welcoming environment and enables success for people from all walks of life; and that shares common, fundamental values grounded in justice, civility, and respect while looking to our diversity as a source of enrichment and strength.
We commit to uphold and advance our mission while exhibiting compassion, respect, integrity, humility, and accountability.
The Club believes that persistent disparities based on such characteristics as race, gender, national origin, ethnicity, culture, disability, age, faith, gender identity, and sexual orientation, together with barriers imposed by poverty, prevent our vision of a healthy, thriving, sustainable community from being fully realized.
We are committed to ensure equality of opportunity in all that we do. We strive to work together to create a welcoming environment through interpersonal interactions that respect and affirm the inherent dignity, value, and uniqueness of all individuals and communities.
