Inclusion & Anti-Discrimination Checklist
Updated: Aug 23
Workplace diversity drives innovation, improves decision-making, and makes it easier to hire more amazing people. But within the animal protection movement, diversity serves an even more important purpose. If we are going to grow the size and strength of our movement and evolve beyond the “fringe,” our organizations must reflect the diversity of the people we hope will join us.
Many animal protection orgs across the world believe in this notion, and yet they find it challenging to expand their team’s diversity and build workplaces where all people can flourish. That’s because so many common organizational practices (from hiring to holding social events) unintentionally discriminate or exclude people with marginalized or non-dominant identities.
The good news is that there are simple, evidence-backed systems we can all put into place to prevent discrimination, grow our diversity, and become deliberately inclusive. These practices benefit people who have been historically disadvantaged and have a positive spillover effect on all employees.
Complete this checklist to identify the organizational systems and practices you can strengthen, change, or create to build a stronger organization for people and a more powerful movement for animals.
