Equity is an important part of fulfilling our mission at March of Dimes. As a part of our organization, employees take the lead through Employee Resource Groups (ERG) and the Diversity Council to guide and hold ourselves accountable for the integration of diversity, equity, and inclusion into all aspects of work.
Employee Resource Groups include:
Sexuality, Pride, Education, Community, Truth, Respect and Unity at March of Dimes (SPECTRUM)
SPECTRUM is our employee resource group (ERG) dedicated to building a supportive and affirming atmosphere for those in our community who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, asexual, agender or allies to their LGBTQIA+ peers. SPECTRUM has held trainings on gender identity and pronouns and LGBTQIA+ allyship and holds regular monthly meetings for all employees.
Black Employee Network (BEN)
Black Employee Network (BEN) is our employee resource group (ERG) that cultivates a safe and supportive space where culture is celebrated. Professional opportunities and advancement are presented, and networking is offered. Through BEN, we explore solutions and value respect and dignity. BEN envisions an equitable employee lifecycle that supports the authentic and diverse experiences of March of Dimes’ Black employees. This is accomplished through education, community building and philanthropy.
