Diversity & Community Committee

We strive to build a thriving community, both for our work culture and local residents, through celebration of diversity and service impact.

Internal Culture: 

We meet monthly to discuss ways to further enhance staff culture, such as continued development of wellness programs, and to plan our community service projects.

During times of struggle, we push for levity and connection points for our staff. Example: CoronaCation Video Series (took place during COVID-19’s quarantine in early 2020).

Throughout the year we do collection drives for things such as socks, diapers, and canned food to be donated.

External Partnerships: 

We support our community through volunteer service. Projects include sandwich making for the homeless, environmental cleanup, and building community gardens. This is one of our staff’s proudest community impact programs, so this bullet point stands alone!

New Targets: 

We are in the process of rolling out a new employee recognition program called the You Are Heroes Program. This will focus less on competition amongst staff and more on in the moment, spontaneous, recognition of a job well done.

We want to continue expanding partnerships with local social equity organizations. This could include supporting a nonprofit whose mission is to promote racial justice or learning from progressive businesses in the space of culture equality in the workplace.
