Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commitment

A Just Society Owes All Women the Opportunity for a Fulfilling Life

Women Initiating New Directions (WIND), a not-for-profit supporting incarcerated women or those in reentry, believes that a just society must give all constituents the opportunity to have their voices heard and to live fulfilling, independent lives. Our goal is to take principled action – within our organization and with our clients and workshop participants – to help develop a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive community. Our mission supports any woman whose interactions with the criminal justice system have placed formidable barriers in her/their way. We believe that all who identify as women, regardless of current or previous incarceration, deserve a chance to heal, thrive, and contribute to society; we see this social justice work as an urgent responsibility to ourselves and future generations.
