Diversity and Inclusion
The International Nanny Association is committed to serving a diverse, inclusive, and equitable community where all in our industry feel respected. We want to make sure that no matter what an individual’s background they are seen and appreciated regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, identity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, disability, education, or any other individual orientation.
We acknowledge that a long and ongoing history of systemic racism and unconscious biases have negatively impacted the nanny industry. We want to be proactive in recognizing the issues that BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) nannies, NCS’s, other childcare providers, and business owners have experienced. We further acknowledge some of the disparities that create problems in the industry consequently contribute to income gaps, stereotypes and unsuitable work conditions for some nannies. These issues will continue if we do nothing. We believe it is our duty to listen, create alliances, and help bridge the gap.
When the humanities of all in our community are respected we all win as an industry and as people.
