DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

We are committed to becoming an anti-racist organization. We will not shy away from difficult conversations as we better understand how anti-Blackness has shown up at ThinkShout in the past, and what we must do to develop pro-Black and pro-Indigenous strategies and systems now and for the future. Engaging in these conversations is a critical way for us to get out on the field and practice - we most certainly will not get it right every time, but if we sit on the sidelines we will never make progress towards becoming a more equitable, inclusive organization. Inclusivity is a core value at ThinkShout. ThinkShout is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of equity, diversity, and inclusion. A diverse workplace strengthens the work of all employees, ensures that the organization has the strongest staff possible, and enables all employees to collectively and more completely pursue the fulfillment of our mission, vision and values.
