Statement of Inclusion
A world where all communities have access to safe and healthful food is a world where the voices of all communities are uplifted. AFI is an equal opportunity employer and does not tolerate, ignore or condone any form of discrimination.
We work to support people from communities that have been historically and structurally excluded, including BIPOC communities, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA2 and those with caring responsibilities. AFI strives to be inclusive in its events and projects so that diverse perspectives are presented, and a full range of individuals have equal opportunity
to participate in discussions and conversations. AFI ensures that its resources recognize both non-traditional and traditional excellence. We welcome further feedback and dialogue.
