We believe that in order to promote equity in the nonprofit community, we have a responsibility to engage in both internal and external work aimed at ending systemic oppression. Through such efforts we hope to foster a more equitable job market and a more inclusive work environment and culture.
We believe that the work to undo the many forms of oppression that exist is both necessary and hard; acknowledging this means that we will continue to educate ourselves, our clients, and our communities as a first step towards making lasting systemic change. We aim to hold ourselves and those around us accountable in the fight for social justice. This learning process is vital to both our professional and personal lives. No matter how uncomfortable the journey, we know that discomfort is where real growth occurs.
Our hope is that the work our team is doing internally to strengthen our knowledge, education, and perception will provide a solid foundation as we look to make an impact with our clients as individuals and search committees, and on the nonprofit sector as a whole.
