Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City is committed to providing a culturally and psychologically safe environment for everyone associated with our charity: guest families, visitors, volunteers, staff, donors, vendors and partners.

We are determined that kindness and inclusion will permeate every interaction so that all will experience a true sense of belonging here.  Together we continually and intentionally create and maintain a community where ALL people are affirmed, respected and valued.

We appreciate the complexity of our shared and individual humanity. We acknowledge our mutual responsibilities to each other as people of diverse race, ethnicity, language, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, religious beliefs, health, abilities, political affiliation, immigration/citizenship status, and lived experience.

As an organization, RMHC-KC is actively listening to the diverse voices in our community and taking action to ensure that we are living up to our commitments.  We will keep listening, learning and working.  We know that there is much more work to be done and that the journey is ongoing.
