About Us

WHO WE ARE

PERSPECTIVE is a private foundation that funds storytelling and media to shape and alter our perspectives and shepherd the waves of popular opinion toward equity, justice, and human rights. That’s why we support powerful documentaries, visionary media makers, and cutting-edge organizations that are creatively and strategically using storytelling to advance social change.  


At PERSPECTIVE, we aim to build a thriving ecosystem of storytellers and cultural strategists that have the tools, knowledge, and resources to advance social change.


EMPLOYMENT PHILOSOPHY:

Perspective Fund believes we are strengthened by the diversity of our staff, and welcomes such diversity including race, gender identity or expression, educational attainment, disability, veteran status, and personal experience with the criminal justice system. We welcome applications from people of all cultures, backgrounds, and experiences, and we strongly encourage people of color and persons with disabilities to apply. We actively cultivate an institutional culture that reflects the values of respect, equity and inclusion that we seek through our work to amplify in the larger world.

We hire, promote and retain employees based on their professional qualifications, demonstrated abilities and work performance, as well as on the degree to which these qualities are required in the employment positions made available by the Foundation’s service needs and business requirements. All personnel decisions, including but not limited to recruitment, hiring, compensation, assignment, training, promotion, discipline and discharge, are made without discrimination based on any protected characteristic as defined by law (e.g., race, color, religion, national origin, citizenship, ancestry, age, disability, gender identity or expression, sex, sexual orientation, marital or familial status, domestic partner status, veteran or military status, genetic predisposition or carrier status, and prior criminal convictions, as well as educational attainment.)
