We recognize that we have an important role to play in helping to dismantle racism and promote equity, diversity, and inclusion for all through education, understanding, and action within our organization and throughout the communities we serve. We welcome this opportunity and embrace the challenges and benefits it presents.
Our Race, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (REDI) Awareness & Action Initiative formally facilitates awareness and action at Downstreet that advances equity and centers the needs and experiences of those living in Downstreet’s housing and participating in Downstreet’s programs. This work involves hearts and minds as well as policies and procedures, with outcomes that impact all areas and operations of our organization along with the communities we serve. With the help of an outside facilitator we have developed a framework to guide this work into the future.
We believe that our organization is strongest when we have a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. We know that the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be, so we encourage all who are interested in joining us to apply when positions are available. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, national origin, marital status, disability, or Veteran status.
