Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

Our DEIB mission statement.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

At Carbon Five, we recognize that the work of creating a just world will never be completed, and our growth is in flight. We value honesty and self-reflection, and are committed to doing the hard work over the long run that is required for true institutional change. We want to build a team that reflects the diversity of identities in the communities we live in — not just the dominant paradigm in the tech world.

We understand that equity is a core component of justice.

We hold ourselves accountable for pay and title equity through data analysis. We strive to be a community where not only all are welcome to be themselves without fear of discrimination, but are encouraging of each other to thrive. We foster a culture where people are empowered to stand up for themselves and each other.

We know that DEIB work cannot happen in isolation.

Carbon Five is committed to working with other organizations and non-profits within and outside the greater technology community in order to foster diversity, anti-oppression and inclusivity. We’re making concrete commitments towards fostering diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging within our organization and are transparent with our staff about both our findings, as well as our plans to improve.
