At WYS, we believe that cultural diversity enriches our communities and strengthens our collective resilience. Our “we welcome diversity” statement encapsulates our ethos: ALL individuals valuing each other. We seek to provide a safe and inclusive space for ALL. We reject intolerance and any form of degradation or abuse of any kind. We commit in words and actions to uphold the rights of ALL to feel safe, valued, and respected. WYS Welcomes ALL.

Celebrating Zero Discrimination Day

Zero Discrimination Day, observed annually on March 1st, is a global initiative that aims to promote equality, celebrate diversity, and raise awareness about the importance of human rights. Zero Discrimination Day serves as a reminder of the importance of treating every individual with dignity and respect, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability, or any other characteristic. It serves as a poignant reminder of the ongoing fight against discrimination in all its forms and the need for collective action to create a more just and equitable world.

Embracing Diversity in Action

At WYS, we celebrate diversity not only in words but also in action. We prioritize cultural competence and sensitivity in our programs and services, ensuring that we meet the unique needs of individuals from diverse backgrounds. Our team reflects the diversity of the communities we serve, allowing us to better understand and address the challenges faced by our clients.

Our Call to Action

As we commemorate Zero Discrimination Day, we invite our community to join us in celebrating diversity and championing human rights for all. Together, let us reject discrimination in all its forms and strive to create a world where everyone feels safe, valued, and respected.

At Western Youth Services, diversity is not just a value we uphold; it is the foundation of our work. As we mark Zero Discrimination Day, let us reaffirm our commitment to embracing diversity, promoting equality, and standing up against discrimination. Together, we can build a more inclusive and equitable future for all.
