Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the heart of Swords to Plowshares' mission. We passionately embrace these principles to create an environment that honors each person's story and empowers everyone to thrive.


Embracing Diversity

At Swords to Plowshares, we recognize the importance of reflecting the diversity of the veterans we proudly serve. While not every member of our dedicated staff and Board of Directors is a veteran, we understand that the veteran community encompasses a multitude of identities. It is our belief that those who serve veteran clients as staff and volunteer Board members should mirror this diversity. Interested in joining? Learn more about our Board.

Envisioning Equity

At Swords to Plowshares, our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is not just a statement; it's a transformative approach. DEI allows us to examine and challenge institutional practices, policies, and procedures that perpetuate inequities. By explicitly addressing racial inequity, we ensure that all veterans have equal access to support, services, and resources. This commitment also extends to cultivating a workplace culture that promotes growth, community, and effectiveness, ultimately enhancing employee retention and job satisfaction. We firmly believe that a diverse staff better supports our veteran clients, helping us achieve our mission to end homelessness among all veterans.
