Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Statement

Green Iowa AmeriCorps is committed to fostering an inclusive, diverse, and equitable culture and are striving to include these practices within our organization and work across Iowa. We believe embracing diversity creates lasting impacts on communities, where people are valued for who they are and their own unique experiences. 


It is vital to our mission to foster a culture where our service members and community partners feel valued, supported, and included in every aspect of service. We commit to using these practices in our passion for environmental stewardship.


Our goal is to have an ever-changing, living DEI statement. We seek to provide opportunities for every person, regardless of sex, race, creed, orientation, age, gender expression, religion, national origin, migratory status, disability/abilities, political affiliation, veteran status and socioeconomic background.


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are vital components in the everyday life of GIA and are critical to achieving the real impacts we desire in our communities.
