Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

CHADD's mission is defined by three overarching goals: 1) to provide evidence-based
information on ADHD to the public; 2) to provide support, information, programs, and services
to people affected by ADHD; and 3) to advocate for ADHD-supportive policies in federal and
state law.

• Create and deliver educational program, services, support, and information to people affected by ADHD
• Create and implement educational training for the ADHD community to provide the tools needed to help support an an adult or child with ADHD as well as caregivers and those who support them.
• Advocacy on behalf of the millions affected by ADHD to reshape how society treats, accommodates, and views people with ADHD
• Raise national awareness of ADHD through such activities as the CHADD Annual International Conference on ADHD and concerted grassroots efforts at the local chapter level

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
