In March 2022 Mary’s Pence board members adopted a new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) statement. Based on a version drafter by a special DEI committee composed of Mary’s Pence board and staff, the final DEI statement indicates Mary’s Pence intentional commitment to being a welcoming and equitable organization for all.
Published on our website, along with Mary’s Pence mission, vision and values, the DEI statement reads as follows:
The Mary’s Pence community welcomes you.
Founded on the core values of dignity, justice and solidarity, we seek to be a space of belonging and purpose where community comes together to work for social justice.
The integrity of our work depends on Mary’s Pence reflecting the diversity of the community, and the world, with regard to race, economic status, abilities, faith or beliefs, geography, age, gender identity, and sexual orientation.
Our spiritual roots and feminist values bring us together to listen and learn from one another, and to determine the path forward. There is wisdom in the whole.
We invite you to join us in this work.
