Denver Food Rescue (DFR) is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB). DFR strives to create a safe and supportive space that welcomes and values everyone’s individual life experience and authentic self. We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.
DFR acknowledges that we live and work in a country that does not give everyone equal opportunity to reach their full potential. We are doing the work to be an anti-racist organization that actively works to dismantle racism and white supremacy. We are committed to listening, learning, and taking action to bring about the needed changes within ourselves, our organization, our community, and society.
All employees of DFR have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times. All employees are expected to exhibit conduct that reflects inclusions during work, at work functions on or off the work site, and at all other company-sponsored and participative events.
All employees must attend and complete quarterly DEIB training to enhance their knowledge to fulfill this responsibility. Any employee who exhibits inappropriate conduct or behavior against others may be subject to disciplinary action.
DFR DEIB initiatives are applicable but not limited to our practices and policies on recruitment and selection; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; promotions; transfers; social and recreational; layoffs; terminations; and the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourage everyone to show up as their authentic selves.
Employees who believe they have been subjected to any kind of discrimination that conflicts with the company’s diversity policy and initiatives should seek assistance from a supervisor or the Chief Executive Officer.
