Fully’s statement on Equity, Inclusion, Diversity, & Justice

We acknowledge that racism exists within the many systems and structures in our world, including Fully's workplace and community. In this acknowledgment, we also recognize the way that racism compounds when it intersects with homophobia, transphobia, sexism, ableism, ageism, and all forms of discrimination & prejudice.

We acknowledge that racism exists within the many systems and structures in our world, including Fully's workplace and community. In this acknowledgment, we also recognize the way that racism compounds when it intersects with homophobia, transphobia, sexism, ableism, ageism, and all forms of discrimination and prejudice.

By calling out and naming the discrimination that occurs in society, we take the first step toward breaking down the historical and structural barriers to inclusion. The next step is to actively and continuously strive to do better. We know that in order for employees to bring their full selves to work, Fully needs to create a foundation of trust to ensure that everyone feels safe and truly welcomed. Without this investment in our community or the creation of an actionable plan to uplift and support Black, Brown, and other historically marginalized people, we become perpetrators of oppression.

As a company that began with a mission to bring balance into the lives of others, we are committed to doing our part to improve life for our employees and community. Through constant reflection and evolution, we aspire to do better. This work is at the heart of who we are and what we stand for.

Land Acknowledgement

Land Acknowledgement

As we do this work, we also must also acknowledge that the land on which we conduct our business, namely our headquarters in SE Portland, was home to many Native Peoples. We grieve the loss they suffered when their land was stolen from them. We hope that by recognizing their existence and this great loss, we honor them and create a bridge toward healing.

"The Portland Metro area rests on traditional village sites of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Bands of Chinook, Tualatin, Kalapuya, Molalla, and many other tribes who made their homes along the Columbia River creating communities and summer encampments to harvest and use the plentiful natural resources of the area" (Portland Indian Leaders Roundtable, 2018)

The Fully EIDJ Team

The Fully EIDJ Team

The Equity, Inclusion, Diversity & Justice (EIDJ) Team at Fully was created to facilitate meaningful conversations amongst team members and to be a resource for management as they endeavor to implement change within our own business practices. Every EIDJ representative applied to be a part of this team, and selections were based on ensuring a range of intersectionality and identities.

To amplify our commitment to fostering inclusivity, equity, and diversity within the company and beyond, the EIDJ team meets monthly to create an action plan and evolving roadmap to advance equity practices throughout our company.
