Diversity and Inclusion Policy

At Feeding America West Michigan, a diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace is one where all employees, board members and volunteers, whatever their gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, veteran status or any other protected category under applicable local, state or federal law feels valued and respected. We are committed to a nondiscriminatory approach and provide equal opportunity for employment and advancement in all of our departments, programs, and worksites. We respect and value diverse life experiences and heritages, and ensure that all voices are valued and heard.

Feeding America West Michigan believes that diversity, inclusion, and equity are connected to our mission and critical to ensure the well-being of our board, staff and the communities we serve. We will lead with respect and open-mindedness. We expect all employees to embrace this notion, and to express it in workplace interactions and through every day work practices.
