Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion

We honor our differences. At EdNavigator, we believe diversity makes us a stronger organization. We acknowledge, value, and leverage the different backgrounds, perspectives, experiences, and talents that each of us brings to our work together. We strive to build a team that reflects the families and communities we support.

We champion equity, internally and externally. EdNavigator’s work is rooted in the goal of increasing equity in educational opportunity and outcomes. We align our policies, practices, strategies, and resources to advance this goal and ensure that EdNavigator employees of every race, ethnicity, social background, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status, and national origin have genuine opportunities to thrive.

We cultivate an open, connected, and inclusive culture. Individually and together, we strive to create an inclusive culture that welcomes all voices and inspires us to be our authentic selves, try new things, speak openly, and be bold. We recognize this as an ongoing and collective endeavor and regularly reflect on and improve the practices, behaviors, and ways of working that shape this culture.
