RYSE values diversity, equity and inclusion as vital to our mission to provide a continuum of services that empowers Hawaii’s street youth to move beyond homelessness. We believe that all people deserve to be shown respect, treated fairly, and included. We celebrate the qualities that make each person unique, including race, gender, age, sexuality, ability, religion, national origin, gender identity and other identities.
We strive to build a workforce that champions racial equity, values different backgrounds and celebrates unique perspectives. Attracting and onboarding a diverse workforce with lived experiences ensures we provide a welcoming environment to our youth and makes RYSE a dynamic and creative community partner.
Our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion is how we address societal challenges. We are proud to employ people of all backgrounds who possess the talent, energy, and focus to accelerate our vision forward to end youth homelessness.
