A note about World Savvy’s commitment to anti-racism and recruiting:
In the past, we’ve used equity and inclusion language to express our social justice values and our intention to build a team that reflects the racial diversity of the students, educators and districts we serve. Like many organizations, we’ve recognized how passive and ineffective this has been at overcoming the effects of systemic racism that have impacted the workforce for generations. Many things need to change, including the dialogue we have with job seekers. To that end, we share the following:
Our commitment is that as we grow and intentionally build a team that reflects the ethnic, racial and cultural diversity of the students, educators and communities we serve. This population is currently 50% or more BIPOC. Recognizing the gap we have on our team, we’re seeking individuals who are Black, Indigenous and People of Color to apply. We believe these life experiences and perspectives are critical at the leadership level, in particular, to advance our global competence work. At its core, this work is about teaching students to practice empathy, appreciate cultural differences, consider multiple perspectives and collaboratively problem solve. In an increasingly divided world, the continued success of this work hinges on modeling this ourselves, continuously learning and growing.
