It’s Women’s History Month 2021, a month-long celebration to acknowledge women’s contributions to history, culture, and society. Women’s History month started in 1978 and was born from a local celebration in Santa Rosa, CA. The first celebration of International Women’s Day took place in New York City in 1908. Thousands of women united and marched for better labor laws, working conditions, and the right to vote.
BCC believes in promoting women by offering career opportunities in Behavioral Health. Also, BCC creates nurturing and supportive environments for women and their families to flourish within our residential and community-based programs. Beyond this, we strive to foster equity, diversity, and inclusion among all of our staff. Women facilitate fulfilling our purpose of enriching communities, one family at a time.
Women make up most of our staff and fill every position from doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers to care workers, human resources, and administration.
THANK YOU to all the women who make our world a better place to live.
