To make change happen, we expect all of us to actively embrace and uphold our guiding principles and tangible practices around DEIB. To guide those efforts, we create an annual roadmap to prioritize our investments and help us make decisions as an organization.
In 2021, we focused our collective energy on three initiatives:
- To engage community organizations that support our social justice pillars: racial justice, disability justice, and environmental justice.
- To conduct our first equity audit of internal policies, tools, and approaches.
- To apply an equity lens specifically to recruiting and promotion.
As an organization, we want to sustain our commitment to change, both internally and in the community. So in 2021, we established our Sustainable Giving Fund, an endowment to fund and sustain our investments for the next 15 years.
