The Western Massachusetts Training Consortium has made a commitment as an organization to change how we approach our organizational mission, vision, and values. One of our commitments was to revisit our mission statement and move from identifying as a multi-cultural organization to a social-justice organization that is committed to anti-racism. Our work here as an organization is to work toward addressing systems of oppression as we seek to undo the harms that they have caused.

As part of this commitment, we offer the following benefits to employees.
