Employer's Approach to Diversity, Equity, & Belonging

The UVM Foundation is committed to diversity and building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and ages. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people, and people with disabilities.

We recognize that becoming an inclusive employer is a journey, not a destination. Along the way we are engaged actively in full staff retreats with external speakers and experts; days of learning; comprehensive learning curriculum to build awareness, knowledge and skills; and an active employee-driven knowledge community delivering content and activities focused on multiple and intersecting identity-related topics.
