COTS’ Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

COTS believes the diversity of experiences, ideas, individuals, and organizations in our community and the sector makes us stronger. To allow our staff to thrive, to create a more just and engaged community, and to truly serve our clients across the spectrum of need, we must embrace and celebrate diversity, practice inclusion, and exercise our role as a champion of equity. COTS is committed to implementing policies and practices of social equity that empower a diverse and inclusive environment for staff, volunteers, clients, programs, and the communities we serve.

We acknowledge and honor the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals. We pledge ourselves to creating and maintaining an environment that respects diverse traditions, heritages, and experiences.
