I Will Wait

● I Will Wait: Using actual spouses’ experiences, I Will Wait weaves these stories together through a fully realized theatrical production. The story begins in 1945 at the end of World War II and travels through “forgotten” Korea, the volatile Vietnam era, Desert Storm, and ends with spouses caught in the current cycle of war and deployment.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
