The Board of Health has endorsed a Diversity Charter that will be widely promoted, and at a minimum, be displayed in all three Health Unit sites. This statement will be visible to staff and to clients seeking services from the Perth District Health Unit. It will also be included in the orientation of all new Health Unit staff:
We believe that diversity enriches the communities in which we live and work. The Perth District Health Unit celebrates diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, regardless of race; background; education; ethnicity; language; culture; religion; sexual orientation; sex; gender or gender identity; marital, parental or family status; age; ability; employment status; or economic status; appearance or health status. PDHU promotes an environment that is free from discrimination and harassment. It is our hope that every client, community member, volunteer or staff person will see themselves as valued in the organization and in the community.
