Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Throughout our history as an organization, Cardinal McCloskey Community Services (CMCS) has stayed true to our values of treating each individual-regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual preference, religion, health and ability status- with dignity and respect while embracing their unique talents and the diversity of our community. As we uphold these values and deliver on our mission, we issue this affirmative statement of our continued commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging. We seek to be a part of the solution to combat the effects of racism and exclusion in our society, and to reinforce the rights of each individual to equitable, respectful and fair treatment.
