Equity & Support

Equity is as much an ongoing process as its critical outcomes. Here’s what we’ve structurally put in place, and where we have left to improve as an organization:

  • We value varied experiences & backgrounds, and ensure that interviewees reflect trans BIPOC communities
  • Our hiring teams for open positions are at least 50% BIPOC and use evaluation rubrics to reduce implicit bias
  • We recognize barriers to employment in our communities, which means:
    • There are no minimum education requirements for any position
    • We do not penalize employment history gaps
    • We consider non-traditional work experiences
  • Trauma informed PTO policies
  • Flexible work hours & break schedule to honor life/work balance
  • Standard accommodations are listed for all staff
  • Confidential individual accommodations available upon request 
  • 100% Employer paid group health insurance plan for all staff employed at 28+ hrs/week 
  • Worker-led BIPOC and white caucuses
  • Organization-wide task force on Addressing Anti-Blackness 
  • Remote workplace & flexible work hours
  • Peer support structure for operators
  • Employee retirement benefits by 2021
  • Reduction of weekly hours for full-time salaried employees
  • Internal salary transparency by 2021
  • Workplace care support specialist position by 2021
  • Potential to unionize
