At Seattle Works we strive to build a diverse and welcoming community through focus on equity in all aspects of our work. As part of this work, we expect and encourage our partners to work with us to make sure volunteering is accessible and welcoming for everyone. To learn more about our goals, please visit our Equity page. If you have experienced harassment, micro- aggressions, racial discrimination or other racial misconduct at a Seattle Works event, please hold us accountable via our Racial Grievance Reporting Form.
AGENTS OF CHANGE
Are you a professional, volunteer or board member in the non-profit sector? Are you looking to learn more about how to incorporate an anti-racist lens to the work or volunteering you do? Want to connect with other inspiring folks that are looking to decolonize the non-profit sector? If you answered "yes" (or "YES!") to those questions, the Agents of Change Cohort is calling your name! Learn more here.
Looking to expand your community, have fun, and learn things in a welcoming space? If you identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Color), then this program is for you! The BIPOC Link-Up focuses on topics that promote positive well-being for BIPOC to connect, build community, share resources, discuss racial equity, promote healing, & make an impact. Join the link-up here.
The White Caucus is for white people to take part in anti-oppression work in a way that’s useful rather than destructive or distracting. We caucus to process feelings, retrain ourselves, and take action to dismantle racism and shift power to people who identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC). Learn more here.
