Diversity Statement – OMNI Board of Directors

OMNI’s Board of Directors respects and values the diversity of all its clients, staff, and Board members. The Board of Directors defines diversity as individuality. This individuality includes a wide spectrum of attributes, such as personal style, age, race, ethnic heritage, sexual orientation, language, physical ability, religious affiliation, family, citizenship status, socio-economic circumstances, education, political affiliation, and life experiences

A diverse Board of Directors creates an inclusive environment in which a full range of ideas and information can be exchanged, leading to fuller and richer Board decisions that will best serve OMNI and its clients

Diversity also creates a Board that is well-positioned to address the changing needs of OMNI’s clients and the communities it serves
