How We Support Diversity
At MakeIT Haverhill (MIH), we believe that DEI is:
DIVERSITY: Welcoming the different values, beliefs, and characteristics that shape a person's identity.
EQUITY: Providing individuals equal opportunity and equal access to resources regardless of race, ethnicity, class, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, or ability.
INCLUSION: Acknowledging and respecting traditionally marginalized communities with accurate representation, support, and engagement.
At MIH we promote a culture of acceptance and embrace each individual’s unique strengths and talents! We lead with empathy and compassion celebrating the diverse immigrant populations that make up the Mt. Washington neighborhood and all of Haverhill.
Our collaborative workspace welcomes anyone who needs skills training, employment, or is seeking to start a business. We bridge the opportunity gap by providing free access to computers, printers, and conference meeting room space.
It is important to us that our programs support a variety of diverse talent and include minority representation. Our workforce development services actively challenge the disparities affecting immigrant and Latinx residents and ensure that they have equal access to employment resources and technology. We offer English Language Learner (ELL) classes, Digital Literacy programs, and job fairs that level the playing field for the unemployed or underemployed.
Through community outreach and cultural enrichment, MIH has built trust and lasting relationships. Our investment in these relationships supports the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, and those pursuing their idea of the American dream. As the needs of our community evolve, MIH will evolve too. The MIH staff and its partners will continue to uplift the community with targeted support efforts that foster long-lasting, sustainable change.
