Pathways to Equity

How equity guides us

At Meyer, we believe diversity and inclusion are the pathways to equity. We remain deeply committed to the equity journey we began a few years back. This video offers a glimpse at where we are today, in 2019.

Our narrator is Khiarica Rasheed, a poet and graduate from Portland's Grant High School, who lent her voice to our vision.
