Breaktime is an anti-racist, anti-homophobic organization constantly striving to build a Team and Board that reflect the diversity of the young adults employed in our program. As an Equal Opportunity Employer, Breaktime does not discriminate in its employment decisions on the basis of housing status, race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or any other basis that would be in violation of any applicable federal, state, or local law.
Our goal for 2022 is to have at least 50% of all new hires be BIPOC. We also uphold the value of radical inclusion–the intentional inclusion of all persons, especially people who have traditionally lived at the margins of society. To us, radical inclusion is about creating an equitable and welcoming organization, particularly for those who are typically not included at the table. To us, equity is the central goal of our work, both internally and externally. We are striving to create an equitable world for young adults experiencing housing insecurity, and while doing so, we are constantly challenging ourselves to create a workplace that is representative of this goal. To achieve equity, we believe in collaborative innovation. Decision-making is not a top-down process; rather, it is a collective team effort that centers the voices and perspectives of our young people. Diversity catalyzes our decision making at Breaktime, and we are grateful for the range of perspectives that allow us to do so. Overall, Breaktime constantly strives to improve the diversity, inclusiveness, and equitability of our organization, and we invite continuous feedback as we advance towards this goal.
