“I was initially attracted to Demos because it’s important to me to work for an organization that centers racial equity in both its internal and external work. Throughout my interview process I was asked questions exploring my understanding of issues of racial equity and asked to consider my role in centering racial equity as a potential employee of the organization. In over 15 years of working in the non-profit sector, this was the first time I was asked direct questions about racial equity as part of an interview process. This is just one small and critical example of the ways that Demos embeds and operationalizes racial equity in its policies and practices.”
“One reason I have been committed to working at Demos for over a decade is because I appreciate the organization’s ongoing commitment to live our values. For example, when we advocated for paid parental leave, we adjusted our organizational policy to increase the amount of paid leave. When we participated in the Fight for $15 Campaign, we increased the pay rate for our interns to $15 per hour. When we began our Racial Equity Transformation process, we looked at all of our organizational policies with a racial equity lens and made updates. Having seen other organizations who are not able to make the same commitment to living their values, this is something I never take for granted.”
