Employer's Approach to Diversity, Equity, & Belonging

As a 2STLGBQ+ organization, we believe deeply in the interconnectedness of all liberation struggles. We understand the responsibility that we hold if we wish to contribute to a world where the struggles for 2STLGBQ+ rights and global liberation are intricately woven together. Our approach to diversity work is always intersectional, which means a constant attention to the ways that the various interlocking systems of oppression in our society show up for all of us differently. Being mindful of the intersectional nature of lived oppressions in social justice spaces gives us space to think more explicitly about the nuances of our experiences and struggles. We strive to continually apply an intersectional, equity-based lens to decisions around operations, programming, strategic planning, fundraising, and community outreach.
