The work begins with us.
Developed and disseminated by the Tenets Initiative, The Diversity-Informed Tenets for Work with Infants, Children and Families (Tenets) are a set of strategies and tools for strengthening the commitment and capacity of professionals, organizations and systems that serve infants, children and families to embed diversity, inclusion and equity principles into their work.
This site offers resources and information about workshops for individuals and groups striving to build a just and equitable society — whether it be in our personal practice, while working with clients/participants, or creating policies or strategies.
We believe that change is catalyzed when we ground ourselves in self-reflection, take responsibility to end historical and contemporary patterns of injustice within society and systems of care, and practice individual and collective transformation.
