Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement
In order to fully accomplish the Hemophilia Foundation of Southern California’s (HFSC) mission, we believe that we must be aware of and responsive to the needs of everyone in the community whom we serve. We will create and implement programs using information and input from the communities we serve. Our organizational culture will value people of all backgrounds and will foster an environment of respect, openness, learning, integrity, honesty, and a sense of community. HFSC’s commitment to inclusiveness will be evident in our organizational structure, policies, procedures, board of directors, individual staff members, volunteers, and within our organizational goals and future vision.
One of the goals of HFSC is to embrace inclusiveness within the community that we directly serve. This will allow the free and open exchange of ideas and the establishment of relationships between people of diverse cultures. This will enhance the development and delivery of our programs, which the community has defined. This goal can be accomplished by ensuring that our staff, board, and volunteers have woven inclusiveness into all aspects of HFSC’s operations.
