Commitment to Equity

As an organization, we focus on equity by providing tools and resources to reduce societal and systemic barriers experienced by underrepresented groups. When we can identify and eliminate these obstacles, we better serve the needs of our diverse participants, their families and caregivers, our volunteers and supporters, and residents and advocates in the communities we serve. We believe this positions Iona to grow and reach more people who need help by expanding current services and developing new ones in partnership with those who seek our services.


Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB)

Iona is committed to building, supporting, and sustaining diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in our work, in our workplace, and in the communities we serve. As an organization, it is our responsibility to create an inclusive environment of respect, caring, and dignity to build our team and fully serve our communities. This makes DEIB everyone’s responsibility—including leaders, managers, and staff. We seek to enable everyone at Iona to reach their full potential and help us innovate and develop the most effective, empathetic, and appropriate ways to serve and broaden Iona’s impact in the communities where our clients live.
