Commongood Careers is committed to social impact. Our top priority is to support the hiring needs of dynamic, high-performing nonprofits that demonstrate an unwavering pursuit of real social impact every single day. This type of impact doesn’t spring up out of uniformity, and it’s not produced in a room of homogeneous perspectives. Rather, the social impact that transforms the world around us starts at the intersection of diverse experiences, points of view, backgrounds and cultures—where the status quo is challenged, unique perspectives are considered, and divergent approaches build a spirit of creativity and innovation.
At Commongood Careers, we are committed to diversity because we believe in social change. It is our duty to build an organization that values the vast possibilities that a diverse environment creates and to work with organizations that share that commitment.
Our Vision for a Diverse Nonprofit Sector
Commongood Careers envisions a nonprofit sector that is staffed by a workforce as diverse as the communities it serves, and that is filled with organizations possessing the cultural competency to tackle a wide array of social issues. To reach this goal, diversity can’t just be a program or a series of events, but rather an ongoing strategic process that supports each of our objectives and is essential for the continued success of our organization.
When an organization is rich in diverse people, talent and ideas, it doesn’t just settle for the easy answers. Diverse organizations are able to reach greater solutions to today’s most pressing social problems. Diversity isn’t merely a goal, but rather a strategic process in pursuit of a much greater goal. It is an integral part of operations that drives performance and is essential for success. In short, diversity makes organizations stronger, and stronger organizations can change the world.
