Cultural Responsiveness is essential to achieving our mission. Our aspirational aim is to advance equity and work toward building a multi-cultural workplace community that balances culturally responsive practice with internal self-awareness and reflection.

This requires a commitment, by each and every employee, to increase awareness of our own cultural beliefs, values and biases; self-reflection and individual growth; and to actively integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion into our organizational cultural at Washburn Center. The on-going practice of learning, developing and action is guided by our core values:

  • We embody compassion
  • We practice resilience and hold hope
  • We build a multicultural community
  • We transform and grow
