Justice, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

The Region 9 Head Start Association (R9HSA) is committed to elevating the critical issues of justice, diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in every aspect of the association. We will strive to adopt procedures and practices with an eye on JEDI+B. We are committed to attracting and retaining diverse governing board members, contractors, and thought partners as we serve the Early Head Start and Head Start funded agencies in Region 9. Together, we will work to honor our collective community. We will strive to create and maintain relationships, learning environments that are inclusive, equitable and welcoming. We envision and will work toward a society that promotes people to be who they truly are – fully enfranchised humans.
