The goal of the BIPOC Clinical and Leadership Pathway Program is to increase the recruitment and retention of clinical and leadership staff from under-represented groups in the Behavioral Health field. This focus area enhances our efforts to promote workforce retention, recruitment, and training of the Behavioral Health/Human Services workforce in Central Mass and support the development of a culturally responsive and diverse workforce.

This model aims to mitigate barriers and enhance access to educational opportunities for BIPOC and other underserved staff to advance their careers and find success through a range of opportunities across the workforce continuum, from professionals seeking certificate-level achievement, college credit, and advanced degrees as well as leadership training. 

This project is funded by MassHire, Commonwealth Corporation, Mass Health, and RIZE Foundation
