As most of you are aware based on recent events in Charlottesville, VA, our country is embroiled in a discussion about race and racism. There is a great deal of divisiveness occurring within our communities that impacts those we serve but also all of us as individuals.
At Pressley Ridge, we believe our differences are our strengths. The combined experiences and talents of our staff, volunteers and the children, adolescents, adults and families we serve strengthen and enrich us as individuals, teams, partners and communities. Grounded in our mission to do whatever it takes to create success for our clients, we foster a culture that values all people, in all our rich and myriad differences, with acceptance and respect. Just as the clients we serve change and grow, so too does our organization and our society. Pressley Ridge is committed to doing more to promote diversity and to address disparities within our organization and our communities.
To this end, Pressley Ridge will not tolerate hate or racism in any form, nor discrimination against any person based on their color, ancestry, ethnicity, religion, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, or related medical condition), gender (including gender identity and gender expression), age, national origin, perceived or actual sexual orientation, marital or familial status, military or veteran status, physical or mental disability, genetic information or any other classification protected by law with respect to any term or condition of employment.
Pressley Ridge values all of our employees, and it takes us all working together each and every day to achieve our mission. We stand strong because we stand together in our efforts to help ALL people. It is my hope that our compassion and kindness sets the example for others.
