Diversity and inclusion is central to Beyond Housing’s identity. We are almost 100 strong and each one of our employees is unique. That’s why we’re committed to promoting a more diverse, engaged and inclusive workplace for everyone who helps our communities become better places to live. 

In 2014, we created an Inclusion Work Group.  The mission of the work group is to create a better place to work by helping Beyond Housing foster an open environment of understanding and appreciation of the individuality and creativity of each employee. 

The vision is to move beyond simple tolerance by embracing and celebrating the differences contained within each employee and to utilize these differences to maximize the organization’s ability to achieve its goals and objectives.

Inclusion Work Group’s Purpose

  • Create opportunities for employees to provide feedback pertaining to diversity, inclusion and equity
  • Plan, promote and facilitate education and diversity and inclusion events to foster awareness, understanding, appreciation and acknowledgement through action of difference
  • Review organizational people policies and practices and make recommendations for change, especially as they pertain to organizational equity
  • Communicate progress on Inclusion Work Group deliverables to Senior Leadership and employees throughout the organization
  • Conduct ongoing measurement and evaluation of diversity, inclusion and equity efforts
  • Ensure Senior Leadership’s accountability to the organization’s diversity scorecard
