At FCNL, we embrace having a multitude of voices and talents working together to strengthen our impact in the world. In keeping with the Quaker testimony of equality, we strive to be an organization that welcomes, values, and respects the different perspectives of every individual.
This commitment presents an exciting challenge and opportunity that requires every person’s involvement and investment for its success.
We aspire to weave the principles of diversity and inclusion into every aspect of our organization. We invite our staff, committee members, and volunteers to share their diverse backgrounds, because those unique perspectives are important contributions to our work. We actively build our knowledge and skills to be culturally competent colleagues and partners working for a just and peaceful world.
We endeavor to develop a richer understanding and appreciation for the strengths of diversity and the benefits of an inclusive community through a variety of ongoing efforts, including our staff recruitment practices, nominating and outreach to community members, professional development opportunities, advocacy programs, and lobbying efforts.
