Our Commitment

Working hard with everyone, together, is what we do. Below, we’ve listed out all the steps we’re taking now. We know there will be more to do – nothing will be enough until there is true equity, love, and respect for Black lives. This is where we start.

 

OUR TEAM

  • Build an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Team (EDIT) that will meet actively to discuss and monitor progress on our initiatives and commitments.

  • Foster an inclusive workplace where we actively seek to diversify our workplace by utilizing our networks and community to increase representation of BIPOC and LGBTQ+ on our team.

  • Implement ongoing required training on (insert all here) for all members of our team, including owners and managers.

  • Hold our team accountable at all levels by adding a measurement of diversity and inclusion efforts to performance reviews. 

  • Create a digital resource center for our team to share articles and resources that continue our learning.

IMPACT ON OUR COMMUNITY

  • Two free classes every month to increase accessibility for the entire Portland community

  • Host quarterly feedback sessions and focus groups with current and previous community members.

  • Monthly donation-based rides to benefit the BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and underrepresented groups in the Portland community, donations will also be made by owners.

  • We are committed to continuous improvement through ongoing evaluation of our efforts. The EDIT team will meet at least quarterly to assess our progress. We will also have a cumulative review at the end of the year to determine how to have the best impact in 2021.

OUR COMMITMENT 

We still have a lot to learn. While we’re doing the work and educating ourselves, we will be sending a periodic survey to community members and staff to hear your voices and ensure we’re meeting our commitment. As we said, we still have a lot to learn. While we’re doing the work and educating ourselves, we want to let you know our door is always open for feedback. 
We’d love to hear from you and you can reach us at [email protected] anytime.

We’ll see you soon,
Tony and Lindsay Edgerton – MobCycle Founders
