Engaging and creating a truly inclusive organization.

Nurse-Family Partnership is committed to promoting and embracing inclusivity and diversity as a core organizational value.


Our Diversity Mission:

Nurse-Family Partnership® (NFP) is a mosaic of people deeply committed to the betterment of the world through being with and caring for low-income, first-time mothers, babies and families. Diversity and inclusivity inform our work, policies and decision making. The vast array of identities, perspectives and experiences representative of our clients, staff and stakeholders enhance our transformational potential.
 
We respectfully recognize and give full acknowledgement that meaningful diversity and inclusivity work must emerge in an organic fashion from an organizational wide process. We actively work towards enhancing our knowledge and practices regarding diversity and inclusivity. Within our diversity and inclusivity work, we recognize we are students for life.
 
Through every facet of our operations we actively strive to create a welcoming environment that exemplifies mutual respect for all people. We seek to develop an environment that moves beyond coexistence to full participation, which reflects the contributions of all. In doing so, we hope to model the change we want to see in the families we serve and in our society and world.

Workforce Diversity
We know we are better when our staff reflects the diversity of our communities and the clients we serve. To us, inclusivity means bringing people to the table, listening to the richness in the diversity of perspective and doing our best to ensure everyone has a voice. That's inclusive. That's strength.
