Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At GOBHI, we are committed to our highest priority value, DEI:

“We support the delivery of community-based healthcare which cultivates diversity, equity and inclusion by respecting and valuing each individual’s cultural beliefs and practices, health literacy, preferred languages and communication needs.”

As a leader in the delivery of behavioral health and social services in Oregon, we seek to embody this value in our daily work. We are dedicated to our partnerships and close working relationships with diverse communities in Eastern Oregon and throughout the state. Additionally, GOBHI honors tribal sovereignty and recognizes the inherent right of tribal nations to self-determination and self-governance.

GOBHI’s work culture is one that fosters an environment of understanding and ongoing learning to promote a sense of belonging among staff, regardless of protected classes of race, religion, color, sex, marital status, familial status, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, and gender identity.


GOBHI has an internal DEI Committee dedicated to furthering these values and putting change into action.
