Seven Hills celebrates its culture of diversity with both our staff of 3,600, and the individuals we support throughout the organization. We believe that "Strength Grows from Diversity." Our employees come to Seven Hills from 43 different countries and bring a richness of cultural, religious, and ethnic backgrounds, which embodies the culture of acceptance that drives Seven Hills' mission and vision.
Our cultural competency as an agency does not begin and end with the recruitment of bilingual staff. Seven Hills has an agency-wide commitment toward understanding the language, beliefs, communication styles, actions, and values of all people.
Seven Hills supports a Diversity Committee of staff members who are guided by a mission and vision:
“To provide and encourage sharing and learning through promoting a culture of respect and developing a community of inclusion of all forms of diversity.”
"To be a model of progressive enlightenment which nurtures, dignifies, and values individuals of all backgrounds and beliefs, while promoting an inclusive and respectful work environment."
Staff members from across Seven Hills make up our Diversity Committee, working on awareness and acceptance for all our employees and individuals supported. They developed "Journeys - The Stories of Our Lives" as a platform to introduce each other so that acceptance, tolerance and mutual admiration can grow throughout our family at Seven Hills. See some of our stories of our lives in this video presentation.
