Inclusion Policy

Our commitment to Diversity, Equity, Belonging and Inclusion

Welcome to All

We know that all relationships look different, and that intimate partner violence affects people from every community regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, economic status, religion or nationality.

Our advocates are here to welcome and serve everyone in our community.

Our Commitment

The Cayman Islands Crisis Center is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive, and equitable society. We cannot do our work without focusing on oppression and all the ways it shows up in people’s lives: sexism, racism, bias, and homophobia to name a few. As anti-violence advocates, we won’t look the other way. We cannot truly do our work effectively unless we can dismantle the systemic and structural barriers that have allowed these horrors to persist.

Our work continues as we strive to be better allies, provide more informed and inclusive services to all survivors, and work to gather more diverse voices around each table where we have the privilege to sit.

We are working hard to incorporate equity and inclusion into all aspects of our work. We are engaged in a long-term effort to closely examine and improve our services, policies, hiring practices, organizational culture, leadership and community engagement.

We are growing, changing, making mistakes, and continuously striving to correct them, and doing our best to listen. We invite you to join us on this journey to empower individuals and engage communities to end domestic violence.
