WHY WORK AT SELFHELP
Be a Helper. Be your true self.
At Selfhelp, we believe in embracing the unique combination of background, skills, and experiences that make you, YOU.
We do our best work when we are engaged. Being engaged means feeling welcomed, valued, and heard.
A committee of Selfhelp leaders is shaping Selfhelp’s approach to creating a safe and welcoming work environment for everyone. Major accomplishments in the past year include an organization- wide culture audit and focus groups; DEI-focused training; Employee Resource Groups; reviews of organization policies and space planning with a DEI lens; and frequent communication with all Selfhelp staff.
Our ERGs are many things, from a point of connection, a place to contribute your voice to Selfhelp’s mission, to a space to advocate for change.
The mission of Selfhelp’s Black Employee Resource Group is to foster networking, professional development, mentoring, and leadership opportunities for Black employees in the organization.
The LGBTQ Employee Resource Group works to foster an inclusive workplace culture that supports Selfhelp’s LGBTQ employees. The ERG builds a sense of support and community among Selfhelp’s LGBTQ employees, and raises awareness of the unique needs of LGBTQ staff and clients through education, advocacy, and celebration.
The group’s purpose is to create opportunity for Selfhelp employees who identify as Asian American and Pacific Islander to come together to support one another as they strive to understand and learn organizational and mainstream culture.
The group’s purpose is to address the needs and support employees with disabilities.
The Latin American ERG has been focusing on the following three topics: English as a second language, Latino v. Hispanic, and microagressions.
All you need is 4 members and you can create your own ERG. Email the DEI committee for an application.
