crawfordconnect’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement
At crawfordconnect, we respect and value different life experiences and heritages. Voices from distinct backgrounds should be valued and heard. We endeavor to build an inclusive and equitable non-profit sector where diverse leadership, staff, and volunteers feel truly valued and respected. We understand the value of representation in individual organizations and the entire non-profit sector.
We promote DEI.
As we seek leadership talent for our non-profit clients, we work to promote diversity, inclusion, and equity as critical levers for the well-being of the organizations we serve. We advocate for, and support, board and staff level thinking about how institutional racism and inequities impact our clients’ work, and how best to address those inequities.
We are continuously learning.
In this ever-changing world, we continuously upgrade our knowledge and skills through education. We are mindful of offering best practices in diversity, equity and inclusion.
We work with you to share our knowledge.
We challenge unquestioned assumptions about what it takes to be a strong leader at non-profit organizations and who is well-positioned to provide leadership. We work with you, our clients to ensure equitable and inclusive systems for being more intentional and conscious of bias during the hiring, promoting, or evaluating process. We improve our candidate pipeline by creating, implementing, and supporting programs and policies that foster diverse leadership.
Encouraging a culture of respect and tolerance.
crawfordconnect proudly embodies a sense of belonging where everyone is encouraged to bring their authentic selves to lead, create, and support sector change. We lead with respect and tolerance for all.
