Diversity, equity and inclusion commitment

Our diversity and inclusion path

 

We trust our personal and organizational accountability

 

We envision a world in which every single person can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. We believe knowledge belongs to everyone, and in order to empower people from diverse backgrounds to participate in the collaborative creation of knowledge, we need to build diverse teams that reflect the communities we support and an inclusive culture of belonging that embraces the potential of our diversity.

 

We believe in co-creating safe, respectful and collaborative work spaces. We aspire to generate a sense of belonging by understanding each and everyone’s differences, contexts and experiences. Through our actions, we ensure that the staff at the Foundation has a healthy work environment where they can flourish.

 

We acknowledge diversity as a core value that is essential to fulfilling our mission.

 

We are an equal opportunity employer  and do not tolerate any form of discrimination. This enables us to attract, develop, and retain amazing talent.

 

We are committed to cherishing our differences, and putting people first. We seek to foster a creative environment that unleashes innovative solutions toward building  a more inclusive and equitable hiring and retention process. This commitment starts at the top of our organization and moves through every level of hiring from managers to individual contributors. We strive to ensure excellence in our work by building this path together.

 

We have released two Diversity and Inclusion Reports (2018, 2019) to hold ourselves accountable for our actions towards creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace. This practice helps us to make visible not only our progress, but also the areas where we know we should and will improve.
