Seventeen birch believes in the value and power of equity, diversity, inclusion, antiracism, and antidiscrimination. Centering these values across our institution is the right thing to do for our business, our people, our community, and our world. Outcomes will not be predictable by gender identity, race, color, sexual orientation, language, national origin, religion, disability, or age.
Seventeen birch is committed to advancing policies, practices and a workplace culture that reflects the high value we place on all people. We define antiracism and antidiscrimination as the policy or practice of proactively opposing and not tolerating racism and discrimination and promoting equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging. As an antiracism and antidiscrimination organization we will purposefully identify, discuss, and challenge issues of equity, diversity, inclusion and racism and the impacts they have on the organization, internal and external stakeholders, and the greater community.
Seventeen birch values people as individuals, the beauty in equity and an authentic sense of belonging. We value diversity in thought, perspective, background, and experience.
Seventeen birch expects everyone to uphold this commitment and engage according to these values.
We all are responsible and will hold ourselves, and each other, accountable to create an environment where all employees, consultants, clients, partners, and friends of every gender identity, race, color, sexual orientation, language, national origin, religion, disability, and age; and the expressions of their identities, are embraced, respected and valued. As an organization, we will live up to this commitment by creating a space where we all belong and can reach our full potential.
