Benefits of RIAIMH being a part of the Alliance: Working Toward Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

The Alliance and Alliance member associations, including RIAIMH, are committed to being culturally sensitive and culturally responsive to the diversity of the families and colleagues with whom we work to understand infant and early childhood mental health.  Some of the ways we are doing that are:

  • Serving the Spanish Speaking Workforce: Competency Guidelines® are being translated into Spanish, along with supporting materials for applicants and a Spanish portal for the Endorsement Application System (EASy)
  • Integrating Equity and Cultural Responsiveness into Reflective Practice: In 2018, the 3rd Annual Reflective Supervision Symposium in Golden, CO examined "Mining the Depths, an Exploration of Equity through the Reflective Process"
  • Fostering Organizations Toward Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:The 2019 Alliance Leadership Summit included a presentation from Irving Harris Foundation Tenets facilitators and set the tone for a deeper exploration and commitment across the Alliance and its member associations to include the Tenets in our workforce development initiatives and to create more culturally responsive organizations
