Yesterday, Noble’s Equity Team hosted A Noble Conversation – Our Antiracist Commitment with over 350 staff members around Noble’s antiracist work. This commitment statement was the culmination of months of work to answer our CEO’s charge: that Noble will become an antiracist organization. This conversation was the first opportunity for staff to see the commitment, which was created to push Noble to be a more just organization while honoring the work, voices, perspectives and experiences of all the people we serve.
Staff members read the statement in affinity groups – breakout rooms with others who share a similar racial identity, to ensure that staff felt safe and comfortable while engaging with Noble’s commitment. The affinity groups were facilitated by DEI Steering Committee members of the same identity, who along with the equity team, spent the last several months crafting the commitment statement.
