Systemic Inequalities in hiring cause people who are BIPOC, LGBTQ+, women, and others with non-dominant identities to apply for jobs only when they meet 100% of the qualifications. We encourage you to break that statistic and apply if you feel you would be a good fit for this position, as applicants rarely meet 100% of the qualifications. We look forward to your application.

Pride Center of Vermont strives to ensure our board and staff accurately and authentically represent the communities we serve, with a focus on racial equity, inclusion, and belonging. This means prioritizing recruitment, support, and retention of BIPOC queer and trans leaders and the advancement of a racially inclusive, gender expansive, diverse board and staff.
Our board and staff actively work to disrupt systems of white supremacy and advance racial justice within the organization and we’re committed to taking personal accountability and responsibility of centering racial justice in our work.
Each board and staff member is expected to commit to active learning and self-growth outside of our lived experience, by taking an honest inventory of our privileges, and educating ourselves on how oppression shows up differently and disproportionately across identity categories. We are expected to uphold accountability to understand how folks at intersections of multiple marginalized identities across race, sex, gender identity, socio-economic status, and disability, face increased barriers.
