Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Build

Our Commitment to DEI is Ongoing

Build recognizes that diversity, equity, and inclusion is an important part of the broader work of the nonprofit sector. There are significant, and persistent, challenges that impact the nonprofit technology sector as well as the broader technology sector.

The technology sector lacks diversity that extends from nonprofit technology leadership to the broader nonprofit technology workforce. This is something we are keenly aware of. We’re working to make a positive impact by making ongoing investments to create a more inclusive and equitable technology sector.  Some of those investments include:

  • Investing in and contributing to organizations that work to expand access for diverse communities in the nonprofit and commercial technology sector.
  • Expanding our recruitment efforts and hiring process to be more engaged with diverse and underrepresented communities.
  • Not working with organizations that explicitly seek to silence, marginalize, or oppress others including those identified as hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

This is challenging and necessary work.  It takes time, effort, and a willingness to learn. But we strongly believe it is the right work to do as we deepen our understanding of our individual and collective roles in creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive company, nonprofit technology sector, and world.

We Pledge: No Hate

Build is honored to be a founding member of PledgeNoHate.Tech. Joining this important initiative was an extension of our policy of not working with organizations identified as hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an extremist group.  This list is an academically rigorous, external evaluation of the organizations in the United States that are creating outcomes that contribute to democratic backsliding and the erosion of civil liberties and rights.

We are promising to our clients, employees, and the broader nonprofit community, especially those whose work is deeply connected to democracy and social justice, that we won’t simultaneously enable their detractors with our services.
