Our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion is growing
At York Hills Centre for Children & Families, we are growing our commitment to fast-tracking equity, centering diversity and nurturing a workplace culture of inclusion.
In September 2021, we began a process of measuring our commitment to the above by undertaking a diversity, equity & inclusion organizational needs assessment process, which is being conducted by an external third party.
We would like to engage you, our community and community partners to participate in the assessment process. We invite current and previous clients/services users to complete the online survey, which will launch today February 8, 2022 to share thoughts, ideas and opinions with us to assist our work to meet the needs of all people and communities in York Region.
The survey will remain open online for six weeks, closing on March 22, 2022. All information and data collected from the survey will be stored offsite through Arise International Consulting, and will be kept completely confidential. No individual identifying information will be shared with York Hills Centre staff, including the Executive and Board members. All information will also be reported as a collective voice from the community. Click the link below to access Client/Service User Survey:
Community partners, service providers, educators, social workers, advocates, parents and anyone who has collaborated with, or experienced services or programs offered by York Hills Centre for Children, Youth and Families, is invited to engage in the Community Listening Circles that will begin on February 22, 2022. The Circles will focus on specific identity groups to allow exploration and discussions to address specific issues and needs related to individuals requiring mental services and supports from the community group.
Due to the ongoing concerns of health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, all Listening Circles will be facilitated virtually through the Zoom platform. Listening Circles participation is limited to 50 participants per session. Registration is required.
We are inviting those clients/service-users who have engaged with our agency, to complete the Client/Service-User Self-Assessment Survey to share their opinions and thoughts on services received from York Hills
