    Sharing In Our Caring — Episode 4 | An Ongoing Journey in Committing to Do Better 

    We just launched our next episode on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are so relevant in our world right now that we would be remiss not to discuss it. In this episode of “Sharing in Our Caring” (a platform for human services professionals, policy-makers, and thought leaders to shed light on the topics and trends impacting their industry), hosts Elliot Massuda and Natalie Wright-Umoh discuss the importance of DEI and how that work has become more prominent. They are joined by Cindy Joseph, the Founder and CEO of The Cee Suite, who shares her experience as a talent management consultant, with a specialized focus in DEI. Tune in to hear the insights Cindy shares with organizations that are making a commitment to this work. Visit here to listen. “Sharing In Our Caring” is available on most podcast platforms.

    RCPA Member Foothold Technology recently started “Sharing In Our Caring,” a podcast and platform for human services professionals and thought leaders to shed light on the topics and trends impacting their industry. Aimed at providers trying to connect with their communities, policymakers, and those interested in the human services industry, the podcast hopes to invite positive changes in the human services space. Hosts include Elliot Massuda, Strategic Partnerships Manager at Foothold Technology, and David Bucciferro, Foothold Technology’s Senior Advisor.

    Recognize a DSP Doing Amazing Work

    Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) play a special and essential role in supporting individuals receiving I/DD services, empowering them to lead independent and meaningful lives.

    This year for DSP Recognition Week, Foothold Technology invites you to participate with us as we extend our gratitude to DSPs everywhere. We are building a digital recognition board and we’re collecting stories. Nominate a DSP you believe is doing amazing work, and we’ll feature them on our recognition board during DSP Recognition Week — September 12–18. We’ll also send them a $5 Starbucks gift card to say thanks for the great work they do.
