DEI Statement

Good Energy Collective has an unequivocal commitment to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). We believe that diversity includes supporting and respecting the personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance. These differences include age, color, creed, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, marital status, military service status, geographic origin, parental status, physical appearance, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socieconomic status, and more. 

We seek to provide an inclusive environment where everyone is treated fairly and has equal access to opportunities, a commitment that lies at the heart of our mission. Specific actions we commit to take include:

  • Elevate voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQ+, and women through writing and speaking opportunities, and continually seeking to improve our procedures for inviting contributors. 
  • Centering frontline and marginalized communities that are disproportionately affected by climate change.
  • Providing training and educational opportunities for our staff and Board that specifically address racism and biases.
  • Paying fair rates for all work done for the Collective.
  • Ensuring our policies have DEI as an essential value from the beginning, not as an afterthought.
