Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging

Invest in Kids (IIK) is dedicated to building a future where we can no longer predict child and family outcomes, such as healthy pregnancies, child development, and school readiness based on socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, or zip code.

To create this future, we incorporate equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging into all aspects of our organization and work.
