Diversity

Since our inception more than 50 years ago, WestEd has been committed to staff diversity. Different nationalities, ethnic groups, lifestyles, generations, linguistic groups, sociocultural backgrounds, and cultures work at all levels of our organization. We value the distinctive skills and perspectives a diverse workforce brings to our organization.

When we post new positions, we make special recruiting efforts to post on nationally recognized platforms and forums, including several that specialize in diverse workers and serve a wide professional network. We believe a diverse workforce significantly advances our agency mission of promoting excellence, achieving equity, and improving learning for children, youth, and adults.
