OnTrack’s Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Statement
- At OnTrack, we strive to build authentic relationships with those negatively impacted by an industry which has a history of systemic discrimination of biased policies, processes, and programs. We seek to address these inequities by intentionally educating ourselves, connecting more with these impacted communities, creating impactful programs based on their needs, and monitoring outcomes to hold ourselves accountable to continue this work.
- OnTrack’s staff and board selection process aims to attract, retain, promote, and value diversity within the staff and board members. Our approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion values representation and accountability between employees, board members, community members, stakeholders, and partner organizations.
- Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion statement reflects our history and current efforts. We intend for this statement to evolve as our organization grows.
