And that's a wrap. #GivingTuesday 2018 has celebrated its 7th birthday, ushered in the year-end fundraising season, raised $380 million USD for causes around the globe, and already saved the date for its 8th birthday (December 3, 2019).
Today we’re wrapping up Dreamforce 2018. In case you weren’t on the ground in San Francisco this week, here are our takeaways after a full week of learning, connecting, and hearing from some of the social sector’s finest:
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At Jackson River, we acknowledge and honor the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals. We are committed to creating and maintaining an environment that respects diverse traditions, heritages and experiences.
In our daily work, we seek to be conscious of and address the deeply entrenched practices, cultural norms, and decision making structures that perpetuate inequities and continue to learn and act to combat institutional racism and unconscious bias. We approach our work on diversity, equity, and inclusion with thoughtful optimism and sustained commitment. When we fall short, we will examine our practices and continue to learn.
