We are committed to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
At The Family Partnership, we are committed to sustained actions over time to advance equity, diversity and inclusion in our society and organization.
We know systemic inequities, especially based on race, pose real and significant barriers to people and communities working to reach their full potential.
The Family Partnership strives to develop, model, and influence policies and systems to ensure that diversity, inclusion, justice, and equity flourish in our organization, city, state, and country.
Data pulled from our AA/EEO report to the state of Minnesota (from June 1, 2019 to May 31, 2020).
The Family Partnership values diversity and representation that goes beyond the AA/EEO report. During the same time period four of 19 leadership team members identify as members of LGBTQ communities, three staff members identified themselves as people living with a disability, and many staff live in the Minneapolis communities we serve.
Social Determinates of Health
Research and brain science inform The Family Partnership’s EDI work.
Researchers across the country and the World Health Organization have found that social determinates of health create societal stratification – responsible for health and economic inequities among different groups of people. Impacts include not having access to safe, stable housing; healthy food or quality health services; or, to avoid exposure to environmental pollution.
Our work addresses the disparities created by social determinates of health for Minneapolis families who experience poverty and trauma, often for multiple generations.
