Understanding the Impact of Social Issues on DEI Work

Staying Informed

To ensure we are always speaking and training and consulting from an informed place, we make space for team conversation and processing around social issues and topics that affect our work. Over the past year, we have dedicated time to learning about and discussing:

  • Black lives
  • The LGBTQ community
  • Fat discrimination
  • Anti-semitism
  • Xenophobia
  • Accessibility
  • Violence in Ukraine

…and more. We make space for discussion and learning about social, political, economic issues that affect our work and the  marginalized populations our work impacts. Staying aware and in conversation with the world and people around us, especially the folks who don’t look, think, or act like we do is an important part of living our mission and moving closer to our vision.
