Our definition of diversity means not only being inclusive of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, religions, abilities, and sexual orientations, but must also include breaking down the barriers to employment for people who have overcome the challenges of mental illness, homelessness, substance abuse and those with nonviolent felonies.

…. And we practice what we preach.
