Zeno is seeking a Program Specialist to deliver Zeno programs to our partners, advancing our mission to spark joy and inspire a love of math in young children and families through racial equity, family engagement, and play, all centered in the experiences of communities of color.

At Zeno, we believe that racial equity is a key component to our culture and ongoing success. To drive a vision of racial equity within Zeno's team, programs, and partnerships the following principles serve as our guide:

• We Put People First. We draw on the wisdom, values, voice, and

experiences of our communities to inform our collective effort. We acknowledge that our collective effort is bigger than just Zeno and are allies in breaking down all systemic oppression.

• We Practice Execution Over Perfection. We try things, iterate, learn, and improve as we go and we do this with humility and accountability.

• We Grow Together. Personal and professional growth is a lifelong process and we create environments that foster growth for employees, partners, and community. We seek out new experiences, skills, and relationships that will expand opportunities for our employees and our community, even beyond the

doors of Zeno.

• We Honor Family and Community. We build programs, services, and partnerships that intentionally account for race, place, culture, and language and that honor the work parents are already doing. Our communities, board, and employees can see themselves reflected in our work.

• We Support Each Other in Meaningful Ways. We develop the power and skills of others while placing the right emphasis on the things that matter - family, children, people. We create healing spaces for others and will bravely engage in dismantling unjust systems and racist culture.
