Announcements:

I am seeing some ugliness in the United States right now and feel a need to say something.

ROI has a diverse workforce, which I personally value greatly.  ROI serves a diverse - and vulnerable - population of people, whom I also value greatly. Together, we all enrich each other’s lives.

Just a couple days ago we had a female staff who was verbally sexually assaulted by someone in the community.  I am reminded that this is an ongoing issue in our society, not something new. I find it incredible that people do this.   I will not tolerate this.  I have a wife, a daughter and three grandaughters who deserve better.  Of course, all women deserve better.  News outlets are reporting hate crimes across the Country.  They were already occurring so I don’t know how much has changed.  Some people seem to feel safer displaying their hatred and bigotry all of a sudden.

When people with disabilities are mocked so is ROI’s Mission and purpose in our community.  It demonstrates a lack of respect for anyone who is different.  We need to stand together. Simultaneously, we need to support and protect each other.

We have two Core Values that stand out to me today:

We recognize and celebrate the diversity of all people and treat everyone with dignity and respect.

We strive to recruit and retain a talented and committed workforce dedicated to our Mission, Vision and Core Values

ROI is committed to these values.  I pledge my personal commitment to these values. We need to support and protect the people we are here to serve.  We need to advocate in their best interest.  I will continue to do just that.
