Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Statement


Astor has always held to the Core Values of Respect, Integrity, Hope, Partnership, and Quality Service. 


Through these Core Values, Astor recognizes that we need to understand and acknowledge the ways in which institutional and systemic oppression impact all of us. Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, identity, and experience drives us forward every day.


Astor is dedicated to this ongoing work and acknowledges our responsibility for developing an environment that strives to eliminate disparities that impact those we work with and serve. Astor remains committed to creating a culture centered around professional integrity and social justice. We will do this by ensuring that we provide a safe and inclusive environment in partnership with our communities and collaborating organizations.


We strive to create nurturing spaces to empower all the communities we serve and are a part of, to question, challenge, and ultimately dismantle negative and unfair treatment. Through these actions, together we can truly address inequities and be leaders of change.
