Kids Read Now: Diversity, Equity, Inclusivity, and Belonging Commitment
The Kids Read Now nonprofit literacy organization is made up of individuals with varying backgrounds, experiences, cultures, talents, and preferences.
We believe teams who are diverse bring needed perspective to the table, are creative and innovative, and are more likely to be fulfilled, successful, and able to bring out the best in others.
Our ideal team of volunteers, employees, advisors, and directors reflects the diversity of the children and families we serve from all communities. We work toward that goal consistently with recruiting, promoting, and retaining people who can speak to the various challenges faced by families and educators today.
We want you to know that you belong and are valued both as an individual and a team member for your contributions and uniqueness here. And in keeping with our core value of being “lifelong learners,” we know there is always room for growth: therefore, we promise to continue to educate each other to ensure everyone is treated fairly and respectfully in all situations.
