Welcome

We're excited to see participating chapters create a DEI program. CAMFT recognizes that some chapters may require a few more hours of consultation. Consideration for additional consultation hours will be reviewed based on need. These consultation hours will take place between October 2021 and March 2022.

TESTIMONIALS:

Meetings:

"We wanted to outline a plan to grow diversity and to develop a plan that is manageable for programming (modify formats.) Mariama assisted us with surveying our members, advised to consider quality vs quantity regarding the content and types of events, and to re-consider how the meetings are being run."

Membership:

"We wanted to delve deeper into the membership survey data. Mariama suggested to launch another membership survey and to gather additional DEI data. From that we were able to develop a written plan."

DEI & Membership:

"We wanted to develop a plan for DEI and develop a program to have crucial conversations. Mariama assisted us in developing a plan for DEI using the matrix, investigating the demographics of clinicians in the area, and expanding outreach to diversify the membership"
