RedRover recognizes the deep systemic racism within the animal welfare sector. Our mission is to help animals in crisis and strengthen our relationships with animals – but the lives of animals do not exist in a vacuum. We cannot fully and effectively help animals without looking deeply at ourselves and how we treat one another. Therefore, we see diversity, inclusion, and equity as integral and vital to the success of our mission, as well as to the well-being of our staff, volunteers, and the people and communities we serve.
RedRover is committed to examining the way we do our work and accomplish our mission with the goal of increasing diversity, equity, inclusion, and sense of belonging. RedRover is committed to working in stronger partnership with the people and communities we serve and actively seeking representation from those communities for our governing Board of Directors and for our staff and volunteers.
We respect and value diverse life experiences and heritages and work to ensure that all voices are valued and heard.
We will engage in ongoing learning and examining our own biases.
We are committed to nondiscrimination, providing equal opportunity for employment and advancement, and ensuring our internal review and promotion practices are equitable.
We will create and maintain diverse and equitable work environments with a strong sense of safety and belonging for our staff and volunteers.
We are committed to modeling diversity, equity, and inclusion for the animal welfare sector and encouraging those with whom we work closely to make this commitment with us.
