Chief Executive Officer
To our incredible community,
As we reflect on the past few years, it is clear that we have all faced many challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented change and disruption to our lives, and we have all had to adapt in new and different ways.
Despite the challenges, I am so proud of the resilience and strength that our community has shown. We have come together to support each other, to learn and grow, and to find new ways to thrive.
I am particularly grateful for the work of The Eight volunteers, and community partners, which have been on the front lines of providing essential services to our community. Your work has made a real difference in the lives of so many people, and I am so grateful for your dedication and commitment.
As we look to the future, I am confident that our community will continue to be resilient and strong. We have learned so much from the past few years, and we are better prepared to face whatever challenges come our way.
I am also proud of the work that we have done to promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) in our community. We know that a diverse and inclusive community is a stronger community, and we are committed to creating a space where everyone feels welcome and valued.
We have made some progress in this area, but we know that there is still more work to be done. We are committed to continuing our work on DEIB, and we hope that you will join us in this effort.
Here are some ways that you can help:
Educate yourself about DEIB. There are many resources available online and in your community.
Talk to your friends and family about DEIB. Share what you have learned and encourage them to get involved.
Support organizations that are working on DEIB. The Eight is working to make our community more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Your support can make a difference.
Thank you for being a part of our community. I am so proud to be a part of this incredible group of people.
