Watch: What Inspires the DEI & B Committee?

What inspires the members of our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee  (DEI&B) to serve? We asked committee members, who (unsurprisingly) provided inspiring answers regarding the source of their passion.

The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee at Nonotuck Resource Associates Inc. is committed to nurturing an inclusive, equitable, and diverse workplace where every employee feels valued, respected, and empowered to thrive. Our mission is to foster understanding and appreciation of diversity in all its forms, promote a culture of belonging, and empower all employees to be agents of change. We support this through organizing open dialogues, educational events, and information sessions. By integrating DEIB principles into our policies and practices, we aim to create an environment where everyone is encouraged to bring their whole selves to work, contributing to a richer, more vibrant community and enhancing our collective success.

Interested in joining the committee? Email committee Co-Chairs Nichole Bourke  and Jannelle Robinson.

“(Through shared living) people with a disability experience a real transformation and discover confidence in themselves; they discover their capacity to make choices, and also find a certain liberty and above all their dignity as human beings.”

Instead, Shared Living creates genuine life transformation for people with disabilities, as well as families and communities. The true power of caregiving is found through hospitality, authenticity, and love.
