SVC-CAMFT DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION STATEMENT
Sacramento Valley Chapter of CAMFT is committed to and is intentional
with regards to increasing awareness of bias as well as the harmful
effects caused by inequality. To that end, our chapter has formed a
Diversity committee whose purpose is to enhance the diversity of
programming offered through our chapter's continuing education, in
content and in representation. We acknowledge that this will be a living
statement that will change as we learn and grow.
Our Plan of Action for 2022-2023:
commit to actively recruit members of underrepresented populations of our
commit to a designated budget for our Diversity Initiatives, including:
events, trainings, and resources for our Diversity Committee.
commit to fostering spaces that are responsive to the needs of
underrepresented affinity groups of therapists, for example: consultation
groups, networking events, and other opportunities for connection.
make deliberate efforts to extend the reach of mental health resources to
the diverse population by providing workshops and training to mental
health providers addressing the needs of said population.
“Inclusion is not a matter of
political correctness. It is the key to growth.”
