LEAVEN LEADERS AFFIRM COMMITMENT TO EQUITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

The Leaven Community Board of Directors, recognizing that equity, diversity and inclusion are critical components of our work for justice and the common good, has committed to an Equity Engagement and Strategy Process in partnership with the Center for Diversity and the Environment. We will...

  • build a diverse cohort representative of our communities to explore issues of equity in our organization and the world
  • adopt a common understanding of the problem, and 
  • hone our strategy and capacity for achieving equitable outcomes, starting with diversity within our board, members and partners.

Through this process, we will move toward our vision of being a vibrant multicultural, intergenerational community with the power to address the pressures on our lives as we live into our common dreams of a more equitable Portland where everyone thrives.
