In every professional role I’ve had, at least 33% of my energy has gone to internal equity efforts. That’s meant having hard conversations about how isms and inequities show up in internal policies and practices, working to create equitable policies through a union contract, and creating supportive spaces for traditionally underrepresented folks, to name a few. Let’s talk about how inequities show up in public interest spaces and what we can do to create just workplaces.
