Commitment to Equity
Equity Caldera recently participated in a year-long equity training project. At Caldera we recognize a historic and persistent opportunity/achievement-gap between white youth and youth of color. Closing that gap while increasing opportunities for all young people is a top priority of our organization. Race must cease to be a reliable predictor of a person’s achievement and success. In order to achieve this goal we are committed to creating and fostering racial diversity at every level of the organization including but not limited to staff, youth, and leadership. With our hiring, our goal is a pool of highly qualified candidates who reflect the diversity of the youth community we serve.
