Inclusion and Racial Justice

At AdvanceEDU, we believe that everyone deserves access to higher education and career opportunities that can power upward mobility and close disparities. We believe this access should be afforded to all, regardless of educational background, socioeconomic status, race, gender, sexual orientation, ability or any other identity.

In Colorado and across the country, students from lower-income households, working students, and students of color graduate at lower rates than peers; yet employers in top industries are eager to bring in the highly diverse talent from these groups into their highly-skilled workforce.

We believe the time to change higher ed and the structure of workplaces to create equity is now. Marginal changes to the status quo just won’t do. We need a fundamental reimagining of what higher education and career advancement can be with equity at the forefront. In fact, it’s why we exist.

Here are some of the ways that we orient our work around inclusion and racial justice.
