At Communities In Schools of Peninsula (CISP), it is important we represent the students and families we serve. We are committed to create a workplace that is inclusive of everyone, where every person can be their authentic self, and where that authenticity is celebrated as a strength.
CISP is an equal opportunity employer. We recruit, employ, train, compensate and promote regardless of age, race, creed, gender, religion, marital status, veteran’s status, national origin, disability, or sexual orientation. CISP’s dedication to promoting diversity, multiculturalism, and inclusion is clearly reflected across our agency.
Our journey to becoming an organization that truly reflects the diversity of our communities and celebrates the strength of our differences to create a more just and equitable world for all students starts with understanding what we mean when we talk about diversity, equity, and inclusion.
While we acknowledge the pursuit of DEI is a journey—and that we won’t get it right every time—we commit to learning from our mistakes in the pursuit of progress.
While there are many interpretations of diversity, equity, and inclusion, we at CISP define these concepts as follows:
Diversity means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, or other ideologies.
Equity is the fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people, while at the same time striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups.
Inclusion is the act of creating environments in which any individual or group can be and feel welcomed to participate while being respected, supported, and valued.
CISP seeks partnerships with organizations and businesses interested in surrounding our students with a community of support! CISP will not partner with any organization that actively discriminates against employees or volunteers based on; race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, or other ideologies.
