Our Commitment to diversity

We are deeply committed to diversity in our staff, contractors, our fellows' ventures, and our programs. Widening gaps between races, classes and communities are pushing us away from one another, and we believe schooling has a better shot at uniting us and drawing us back across these boundaries than any other tool on our belt. We believe the future of school is one where barriers are lifted, systems of oppression are dismantled and anyone interested in building has access and equity. That means making our work about both fairness/justice and about those in power creating and sharing ownership.
