Goodwill of the Olympics and Rainier Region is committed to creating and sustaining a culture of equity, diversity and inclusion in our organization and across our communities. This begins with an immediate focus on becoming an anti-racist organization that actively works to dismantle structural and institutional racism and condemns racist practices and behaviors in all forms. With this aim in mind, we will advance and administer anti-racist, equity-based policies and champion diversity and inclusion throughout our organization and the communities we serve.
We have created and are implementing a multi-component and expanding strategy and plan to help us fulfill this commitment. The initial components of our strategy and plan include:
- Foundational Learning
- Policy Review, Development, and Practice
- Recruitment Process
- Employee Insights
- Employee Advisory Group
- Leveraging ED&I Expertise
- Leadership Development
As we move forward, our strategy and plan will expand, drawing upon input from employees and other key stakeholders and from the evolving dynamics and pressing needs of the communities we serve. We welcome your feedback and input as we take this journey.
