Social Justice

Diversity and inclusion are an integral part of BHN’s mission and philosophy, to provide the individuals we serve with the highest-quality care in a welcoming, inclusive environment and to build strength through dignity. BHN's social justice efforts seek to eliminate social and economic inequities and promote respect for human dignity, inclusiveness of diversity, and the physical and psychological safety and well-being of all people.

BHN established the Social Justice Committee in 2017, whose mission was to strengthen the active promotion of a just workplace and community. In 2020, BHN created a Social Justice Director position to oversee efforts and work collaboratively with staff and leadership. Through this work, it became clear that the scope of BHN’s social justice efforts required a leader at the senior level. The Vice President of Social Justice position was created in 2022 to continue to amplify BHN's commitment to diversity, equity, and justice across the organization and to those we serve in our community.

This commitment to diversity is woven into the fabric of BHN — we embrace our values as we serve our participants, employees, students, families, and communities.
