Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Meeting the Needs of Marginalized Community Members

Syntero is committed to being a provider of choice for marginalized communities whose behavioral health needs are disproportionally worsened by racial disparity, racism, homophobia, ageism, sexism, xenophobia and other harmful societal disparities and negative actions. The Diversity and Inclusion program enables Syntero to better focus its efforts on monitoring the unmet needs of marginalized populations and to continue to provide and evolve programming that meets these needs. Since its inception, Syntero has strived to provide services that are inclusive, and diverse in a trauma informed manner; however, we acknowledge that there is still more work to be done. Internally, Syntero provides continued training, as well as opportunities for discussion and engagement to ensure that all staff members are culturally competent and equipped with the necessary skills to serve the diverse members of the surrounding community.
