As JusticeWorks continues its unwavering commitment to fostering a workplace culture that values diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), we are thrilled to announce our partnership with Vibrant Pittsburgh. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in our journey towards cultivating an environment that mirrors the diverse communities we serve and upholds the core values of respect and inclusivity.

Founded on the principle that our staff composition should reflect the rich tapestry of the families under our care, JusticeWorks has long championed initiatives aimed at nurturing an inclusive organizational culture. Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee, established in September 2022, underscores our dedication to continuous improvement in this vital area.

To gain deeper insights into our staff’s perspectives and experiences regarding DEI practices within JusticeWorks, we launched pulse surveys in 2022 and 2023. These surveys served as invaluable tools in identifying areas for enhancement and soliciting input from our staff. The outcomes were subsequently shared with managers, informing targeted action plans to foster a more inclusive environment across all branches.

The latest development in our DEI journey sees JusticeWorks joining forces with Vibrant Pittsburgh, a renowned organization dedicated to empowering institutions to embed DEI principles into their organizational DNA. Vibrant Pittsburgh’s wealth of resources, tools, and connections provides an invaluable opportunity for us to further enrich our DEI initiatives.

Through this partnership, JusticeWorks is delighted to offer our staff access to a plethora of educational opportunities, including virtual lunch-n-learn sessions and specialized training modules, exclusively available through the Vibrant Pittsburgh members-only portal. These resources will not only aid in our organizational growth but also in our quest to attract and retain top talent, thereby ensuring that we continue to deliver the highest quality services to our communities.

As we embark on this new phase of our DEI commitment, we extend our gratitude to our dedicated staff whose unwavering support and enthusiasm propel us forward. Together, we are poised to embrace the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, steadfast in our resolve to foster a workplace where every individual feels valued, respected, and empowered to thrive.

Join us as we embark on this transformative journey towards a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive future for all.
