Diversity & Inlclusion
Building Strength, Hope & Resiliency

February is Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, we're highlighting the following resource from our Race & Culture Diversity Toolbox, "Walking on Eggshells," a guide that helps you through courageous conversations in the workplace. 
We'll leave you with this timely quote from the inspirational Coretta Scott King: "Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation." 

White Privilege Training Follow Up

More than 270 Wayside employees attended the White Privilege training on February 15. 

We'd like to hear from you! Everyone who emails us an answer to this question will be entered into a raffle to win a $10 Dunkin Donuts gift card:

How will you use what you learned about White Privilege in your work and/or life? 

Send us your answer and you just might win! Winner will be announced in the next edition of Wayside Works. 

Unity Day

On Wednesday, January 11, Wayside joined other members of the MetroWest Human Services Advocacy Coalition for Unity Day at Framingham State University. 

More than 200 people packed the room to listen to a fascinating panel of folks, including Wayside's Director of People & Culture Guimel DeCarvalho, talk about their diverse life and career experiences and to offer hope and guidance as we move forward in this new administration. 

The most powerful suggestion: "Keep showing up for each other." 



Wayside has made available to all employees and clients, for free, PEACE flags, which represent our values and commitment to peace, justice and equity for all people! 

If you would like to learn more about the project, please visit the Common Street Rainbow PEACE Flag Project

If you would like to request your own flag, please contact
