EQUITY AND INCLUSION
Moonstruck Chocolate exists to inspire magic every day, magic that cannot coexist with injustice and inequality. We are dedicated to closing the opportunity and achievement gaps that exist between people of all race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, ability, age, or veteran status.
As we continue to learn, we enter into a deeper understanding that equality cannot be achieved without substantive effort and action to correct and overcome the existing imbalances in our community. We acknowledge that allyship and the pursuit of equality do not have endpoints, but are disciplines we cultivate.
As a result, Moonstruck Chocolate Co. is dedicated to viewing all of our business practices through the lens of Diversity Equity, and Inclusion. To help with these efforts, we are grateful to Prosper Portland for awarding us an Inspiring Diversity Grant. The grant will be used to increase intersectional representation in all facets of our business. We pledge that our work in this arena will not be complete until all people have an equal footing to realize their dreams and create magic.
Volunteerism and community engagement is a central part of our company’s culture. As one of our main core values, our employees have the empowerment to meaningfully affect the future of our business, our community, and our world. The best way to do this is through engagement with our local community and aligning our organization with like-minded establishments based on the values we hold close.
