Ashoka envisions a world free of systemic oppression in which each individual has access to resources, voice, power and safety. Such a world will only emerge if the structural, institutional, and historical barriers that have led to the marginalization of women, Black people, Indigenous people and People of Color, religious minorities, people with disabilities, members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, and working-class people, are addressed. We, at Ashoka, are committed to making these barriers visible and gradually shifting the way that society and institutions have traditionally organized –placing some groups above others-, to allow the equitable and fair treatment of all people at Ashoka and beyond.
This is why we are asking you to answer the following questions. Your self-defining answers will help us understand the community that we are part of and it will inform us in our evolution to become a fully diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization.
