Our Commitment to Diversity

BBBSCK embodies the principles of diversity and welcomes participation regardless of gender, race, religion, culture or sexual orientation. Staff will strive to promote positive relations and participation throughout our diverse community.

  • Diversity recognizes that people have individual characteristics that make them distinct from others, including: age, language, culture, ethnicity, skills, gender, abilities, talents and perspectives.
  • Diversity enriches an environment by facilitating the exchange of different perspectives and ideas.
  • Diversity at BBBSCK is viewed in the context of the communities we serve, the volunteers we attract and the employees we hire. BBBSCK will make every reasonable effort to ensure that it reaches out to community organizations serving diverse groups to develop recruitment strategies. BBBSCK will endeavor, where feasible, to eliminate systemic barriers to advancement and/or redress the under-representation of designated groups.
  • Every employee at BBBSCK has a role to play in supporting our commitment to diversity. Staff will strive to promote positive relations and participation throughout our diverse community
