OUR MISSION

The mission of Inclusv is to ensure staff, consultants, and vendors of color are found at every professional level within advocacy, policy, and campaigns and elections. We envision those who are disproportionately represented in almost every negative measure of well being in our society have a seat at the table to create strategies and solutions for change. Too long organizations and institutions have been working on behalf of communities of color and not working with them. We don’t need well-intentioned ideas that continue to fail. We need to jumpstart professional inclusionary efforts to keep up with the demographic changes in our nation as well as to protect access to the American Dream for all.

OUR METHOD

Inclusv is a community of people of color in politics and advocacy who are dedicated to developing their careers in this field and employers who are committed to strengthening their efforts to make diversity and inclusion a priority in their organizations.  We pursue this work with three primary stakeholder communities:

STAFF: Inclusv recognizes that it is only as strong as its members.  We spend the bulk of our time serving current and prospective employees with access to information about job opportunities, professional development training, and mentorship.  Our membership is free, all it requires is an upload of your resume, which you can do here.

EMPLOYERS/PARTNERS: Inclusv is not a professional headhunter service.  We do things differently because we are people of color who have developed careers in politics and we recognize the systemic barriers that exist in a professional field where hiring is dominated by informal processes and networks.  We work to amplify available job opportunities from employer partners to our entire network, elevate relevant training opportunities, and provide culturally competent career development trainings for staffs or conference attendees of partners.  For more information visit our Employers page.

PROGRESSIVE COMMUNITY: Inclusv aims to be a leading advocate for people of color working in politics and advocacy.  We engage in public advocacy efforts to elevate dialogue around diversity and inclusion within the progressive movement.  To read about our advocacy efforts visit our News & Updates page.
