A System of Mental Health Services

Diversity Statement

Bridgeway Behavioral Health Services was founded on a strong desire to fight disparity and injustice alongside people living with mental health conditions. We are dedicated to nurturing diversity, equity, and inclusion within our organization among the staff and the people we serve. We embrace and celebrate the talents and abilities of people of all races, ethnicities, religions, genders, sexual orientations, gender identifications, incomes, marital statuses, ages, geographic locations, philosophies, and armed services identifications.

We are committed to consistently providing an atmosphere of diversity, equity, and inclusion in our workplace through the following practices:

  • Encouraging transparent communication
  • Pursuing cultural competency throughout Bridgeway by creating learning opportunities
  • Developing and presenting learning opportunities on diversity, equity, and inclusion to committee members, staff, persons served and Bridgeway’s Board of Trustees
  • Developing training for the Human Resources team on equitable practices that will include being intentional in our interpersonal interactions and conscious of bias during the hiring, promoting, and evaluation process
  • Acknowledging and systematically dismantling inequities within our policies, programs, and services
