About Us

DEI

We believe that a Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive world is not only necessary, but possible.

What is Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion?

When thinking about DEI in the simplest sense, our definitions are:
  • Respecting and celebrating the presence of different identities among members in a group.

    — Diversity

  • Ensuring that everyone, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, has access to the same opportunities.

    — Equity

  • Ensuring that all individuals, including those with marginalized identities, feel welcomed and valued.

    — Inclusion

Moneythink’s DEI Pillars

Multi-dimensionality

To truly encapsulate the meaning of diversity, we must ensure that we as a team are comprised of a multifaceted array of identities, characteristics, backgrounds, experiences, and dispositions. This enhances our ability to empathize with and effectively support the students we serve.

Open Dialog

At Moneythink, we strive to create a safe and welcoming environment that evokes the inquisitive nature of our team members. This opens the doors for dialogs spanning a broad range of topics and enables us to engage in more challenging and meaningful conversation.

Intentionality

To change the world, we must begin by acknowledging the disparities that exist and taking action to improve them where we can. Within our team, we collectively choose to prioritize the deepening of our overall organizational expertise, and we continuously recommit to our shared values as a means to drive change.

Agency

We recognize the power we have as individuals in our daily actions and speech, and as an organization working toward the fulfillment of our mission. Through internal reflection and acknowledgement of the limitations of our personal experiences, we seek to broaden our perspective and thus become equipped to positively influence the people and communities around us.

Putting DEI Into Practice

As an organization, we continuously strive to live by the values of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: through the organizational culture we intentionally seek to enrich, through the partnerships we choose to develop, and through the enduring impact we have on our students’ lives. Our work, along with our approach to it, is premised on the notion that transformation is possible; that we can engage in acts that alter the composition and the norms of our shared, common world; that together, we can create the more just world we want to live in .

Hard-working people with a passion.
