Summary of Racial Grievance PolicySeattle Works is building an anti-racist culture of belonging, where people can show up being their true selves, and accountability and is working to model anti-racist practices in our institutional and personal behavior. The racial grievance policy is to support people of color to feel safe in the Seattle Works community and to actively address and interrupt microaggressions, harassment, racial discrimination, and other racial misconduct. Our racial grievance policy is grounded in the lived experiences of people of color and our commitment to addressing and reducing racial grievances in our community. Seattle Works’ culture is growing to be truly more representative, so people of color in our community have organizational support and feel safe.
