Three years ago, we established a new way of tracking our progress toward becoming a more just organization. Developed by our former VP of Equity, Tiffany McClain, the Just FoodCorps Framework considered our efforts along a spectrum and invited staff to share how much progress they believed we could make in three years. See our first DEI report for more information about this tool.
After meeting the majority of our Just FoodCorps goals, we’re phasing out the use of that framework to measure our progress. In its place we’re implementing our new organizational anti-racism strategy, which offers a new vision for where we need to go next (more on that later). Here are some insights about our progress from our most recent quarterly survey, completed in July 2023 by about 70% of our staff—just over half of whom identify as BIPOC.
