Our Mission

The mission of the Diversity Task Force is to increase awareness about the benefits of diversity to individuals and organizations engaged in child welfare practices through communication, advocacy, and education. The Task Force also provides leadership and guidance to organizations that are committed to increasing cultural competence.

The Diversity Task Force holds bi-monthly meetings that are “working sessions” during which work on projects are undertaken. The meetings occur from 10 am to 2 pm at The Pennsylvania Child Welfare Resource Center or via WebEx. Once a year, The Diversity Task Force engages in a one day planning retreat in which needs are assessed and new projects for the upcoming fiscal year are identified.

If you are interested in joining the Diversity Task Force, please contact Cindy Gore at the Pennsylvania Child Welfare Resource Center at lcg7@pitt.edu or Cindy Milian at cmilian@countyofberks.com

“Diversity means all the ways we differ. Some of these differences we are born with and cannot change. Anything that makes us unique is part of this definition of diversity”
