At The Dorm, we are committed to social justice and consistently centering the experiences of our BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, (and) People of Color) community members. A few of the ways that we’ve taken action towards a more equitable future for mental healthcare include diverse hiring practices, ongoing diversity, equity, and social justice trainings, educational roundtable discussions that explore dismantling racism in the field, scholarship opportunities, and consistently speaking up about issues that impact a more equitable future.

Another highlight for our community at The Dorm is our active affinity groups for people of color for both our team members and clients. These groups offer a safe, supported, and exclusive space to share personal experiences and challenges that people of color still face in the workplace, in school settings, or in treatment.

In the spirit of consistently amplifying a diverse array of experiences from our community, we’re grateful to our team’s POC Affinity Group for sharing the following list of recommended resources to spark conversation and connection all year long. We hope that their recommendations offer you a moment to celebrate the stories, experiences, and voices which have historically gone under-represented.
