Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is not just a phrase; each word speaks to distinct values. Our future success will rest on collaboration among people of different experiences, cultures and backgrounds. We seek to foster an environment that reflects our diverse communities and a culture of equity and belonging where everyone feels seen, heard, valued, and empowered to succeed. This work starts with each of us.

MyPath blends employee-ownership with its five core Beliefs and Behaviors:

  • Passion
  • Accountability
  • Teamwork
  • Openness
  • Continuous Learning and Innovation

Our initiatives around Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are driven by our employee-owners and build on those fundamental values. We incorporate diversity, equity, and inclusion into our policies and practices, education and events, and executive and community programs and more.

MyPath DEI Minicast

Every month MyPath publishes a MiniCast around DEI issues and initiatives. Please click here for a preview:

Pathfinders: Led by employee-owners and supported by MyPath executives, Pathfinders group members represent a spectrum of characteristics, identities, life experiences and allyship. Pathfinders have blazed a trail toward greater awareness of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. They amplify the voices and experiences of our employee-owners, create safe spaces for discussion, provide education on DEI topics and history; connect with outside experts who can assist MyPath in its DEI journey; communicate messages of support in response to traumatic national and community events; identify allyship opportunities; offer guidance on emerging social topics and more. Pathfinders groups that currently hold space at MyPath are Abilities and Neurodiversity, Environment, Generations, LGBTQ+, Mental Health, Race & Ethnicity, and Women.

Board Diversification: In summer 2020, the MyPath Board of Directors appointed its first woman and person of color.

Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: MyPath’s CEO saw the passion in the Pathfinders groups and decided that a dedicated corporate position was necessary to champion DEI. The Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion assumed this role in June 2021.

We acknowledge that we are at the beginning of our journey and there is so much more that needs to be done. We continue to look for ways to cultivate belonging via a diverse, equitable and inclusive MyPath for our employee-owners, the individuals we serve, the students we educate, the families we engage, the funders and suppliers we contract with, and the communities we touch. MyPath strives to provide a diverse, welcoming, and inclusive ecosystem ensuring that every employee-owner, client, student, family, and community we touch will prosper.
