We know we are at our best when we cultivate and sustain a diverse team – founded on a culture that is inclusive and an organizational system that is equitable.
This work requires diverse, unfiltered perspectives — so we seek to build a team that reflects the world we live in — and the world we want to ring true in our future. We are constantly looking to advance intersectional representation across race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, ableness, citizenship, language, religion, and other social identity markers.
This kind of aspiration means that we ultimately must be committed, intentional, and reflective. The identities each one of us holds is not a ticket to opt out of continued discourse and self-interrogation. We have to continually reflect, consider how our mindsets and actions can perpetuate, decenter, or dismantle systems of oppression, and then – as individuals and as a team – begin the next day ready to show up.
