10,000 Degrees is rooted in our vision in which all students have equitable opportunities to realize their potential, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or socioeconomic background.
10,000 Degrees welcomes and celebrates all people. We value our collective identities, be that based on race, ethnicity, age, sex, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, religious background, education, socioeconomic status, ability, national origin, citizenship, military status, or political affiliation.
Therefore, we support a diverse array of students in order to help positively transform communities and create a more just world. We strive to create a workforce where everyone feels a sense of belonging and no one is excluded. We are committed to attracting, developing, and retaining employees who reflect the diversity of the students we support and the communities we serve. We know that a workforce that reflects the diversity of all people and perspectives is essential to building strong and meaningful relationships with our students and the communities we serve.
As an organization committed to helping our communities achieve equity, we remain committed to modeling diversity and inclusion and to fostering a welcoming environment for all.
To provide informed, authentic leadership for cultural equity, 10,000 Degrees strives to:
Diversity, equity, and inclusion is not constant, but rather something we continuously strive towards.
Racial equity for students in Marin will be achieved when race and ethnicity no longer predict the outcome of a young person’s educational future. As a Marin Promise Partner, 10,000 Degrees commits to identify and dismantle racial inequities, and to provide equity-based supports, so that our most vulnerable children can achieve their full potential.
