Diversity & Inclusion

Building a Diverse and Inclusive Organization

Jumpstart envisions a day when every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. At the heart of this vision is a belief in educational equity, and a commitment to valuing the dignity of every person. We recognize that in order to accomplish our mission, we must address systemic injustices, especially racial, ethnic and economic, that contribute to substantial achievement gaps for children of color and from low-income families. We believe that our organization should reflect the values and principles inherent in our vision and mission, and that we should be a model of opportunity and equality. We aim to build and nurture a diverse and inclusive organization; we are committed to creating an environment that nurtures unique perspectives, facilitates authentic dialogue, and honors the identities of its community members to enhance our ability to close the kindergarten readiness gap.
