Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At Marin Humane, we understand that to create a better world for animals we must also work to create a better world for people. We know we cannot effectively help animals in our community and beyond without acknowledging how we perceive and treat the people who love them.
One of our core values is Celebrating Differences, and we see diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (DEIJ) as an essential component. We recognize the barriers and systemic injustices that create inequities, not just in the workforce, but in the community and its access to resources.
Therefore, we support and foster a culture of inclusion and belonging for our staff, volunteers, and the communities we serve. Marin Humane is at its strongest when everyone is valued and empowered so we are committed to advancing DEIJ throughout the organization—in our places of work, our staffing, our programs, and in all our endeavors.
Our DEIJ committee is focused on reviewing our organization – both programmatically and as a whole – to identify how we can improve all aspects of who we are, what we do, and how we serve. As we grow as an organization and expand our DEIJ efforts, we’ll update this section with our goals and accomplishments.
We can always do better. We can always learn more. And we know there’s much more work to be done.
