Mission, Vision, and Values Building

August 3, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


Starting from scratch: Mission, Vision, and Value Statement for PALS Doulas

  • Mission, Vision and Values Building: Monday, August 3rd at 11 AM As we began diving deeper into the overdue work of decolonizing our very certification structure, it followed that our organization needed the same work. We welcome your input as we lay a new foundation for the organization we want starting with our Mission, Vision, and Values statements.


The Leadership (a.k.a. Board of Directors) team has been hard at work really examining how to decolonize our organization and create a certification path that recognizes a minimum standard bar and reduces barriers to access. 
The Doulas For All Washington coalition has continued to consult with the Health Care Authority/Department of Health to find a pathway to doula reimbursement that meets the federal mandates without creating further power imbalances (The original recommendation was for unlicensed doulas to work under the supervision of other licensed healthcare providers who would meet the credentialing requirement for federal matching/disbursement of funds and would be able to bill on the behalf of the doula providing services). As it stands, the recommendation from the stakeholders is to pause pushing the process through and explore further a credentialing (certification) process to remove that power dynamic element without creating further barriers to serving communities. 

We would like to invite you to these events (these are open to both current and past PALS members as well as community stakeholders):
