Mothers’ Milk Bank of the Western Great Lakes (Milk Bank WGL) uses an equity lens to guide programs and services. As we educate our community on health equity and disparities, we want to ensure we do our best to address equity on all levels. Milk Bank WGL’s equity committee was formed to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion internally and externally.
The committee serves as advocates and leaders for employees and the communities that the milk bank serves. The committee believes in the importance of Service, Equity, and Accountability (S.E.A). Through these attributes, equity is assessed through the implementation of policies, programs, and practices to ensure that any issues or concerns are addressed and resolved.
Milk Bank WGL applies a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ) lens to all of our endeavors in order to ensure that our organization reflects the community we serve and establish genuine, long-term community relationships.
