21ST CENTURY SKILLS
BUILD honors the dignity and worth of every individual and strives to create equity of voice, access, influence and power across lines of difference – both in and beyond BUILD, specifically for groups that have been historically denied social justice. We acknowledge and embrace the entire range of human experience, celebrating the nuance and insights diversity brings to our work because we believe it yields the greatest impact for students and best prospects for change.
We do not only speak of diversity, equity, and inclusion; we live by it. In our practices, policies, and organizational culture, BUILD works to foster a familial environment where we can bring our whole selves to our work knowing that we are enriched by differences in race, skin color, ethnicity, gender, age, nationality, physical abilities, mental and developmental abilities, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, educational background, work styles, political beliefs, cultural practices, perspectives, and passions.
At BUILD, we know that the people we work with, and the communities we serve, are our greatest assets and strengths. By respecting, valuing and celebrating diversity, equity, and inclusion, BUILD enhances our unique culture and allows for greater impact in the communities we serve.
