Belonging, Dignity, & Justice

Letterform Archive believes strongly in building a workplace that provides for everyone to reach their full potential and thrive as both workers and people.

To help achieve that goal, the Archive seeks to build a culture where:

  • our team members have a sense of belonging by feeling physically, emotionally and psychologically safe;
  • the inherent dignity of each person is upheld; and
  • our policies are rooted in justice by being restorative in nature and practice.

Belonging, dignity, and justice also means centering the voices and experiences of marginalized people and we encourage all qualified candidates to apply for work at the Archive, including: women; Black, Indigenous, and people of color; folks who are trans or nonbinary; people who are queer, lesbian, gay, or bisexual; Autistic and neurodivergent people; folks with visible or invisible disabilities; anyone from another historically marginalized group or anyone at the intersection of these groups.

To find out more about Belonging, Dignity, and Justice as a framework, read the work of Aida Mariam Davis.
