DC Greens' 2024 The Well team crouching in the crop beds, smiling at the camera


Supporting Wellness,
Inside and Out

At DC Greens, we value collaboration over competition. Our work is stronger when we value a diversity of perspectives and experiences. We are committed to taking the time — and doing the work — to build trust in the community and doing it in a way that centers the people who are most impacted by our decision-making. 

Most importantly, we believe that individual wellness fuels collective wellness, and we strive for a workplace culture that encourages and supports wellness in our employees as we all endeavor to have a positive impact on our city. 

Equity in the Workplace

At DC Greens, we are committed to equity. We know biases exist, so we strive to reduce their impact in our workplace. Learn how we actively aim to create an inclusive and equitable working environment for our employees. 

DC Greens invests in identity caucus facilitators. These individuals support safe spaces dedicated to processing, healing, accountability, and coaching for our employees. Caucuses meet regularly across the year. 

DC Greens maintains a staff-led “Equity Cell.” This is a voluntary group of employees who safeguard equity as a lived organizational value in our workplace. They hold us accountable by ensuring all DC Greens’ policies, processes, programs, and projects are conducted through an equity lens, and that equity is a shared responsibility among all employees. 

DC Greens utilizes a pay equity process (PEP) that centers our organizational principles and culture. Our PEP turns away from a traditional, market-based salary model and instead turns toward an anti-racist reparations model. This model works to reverse racist pay policies and structures and center those who are directly impacted by the work of our organization. In our PEP, we put a greater focus on types of labor that are often undervalued, such as physical labor, emotional labor, and language ability. 

As a result, all DC Greens salaries are non-negotiable. Instead, all employees begin with the same base salary. Then, key areas of responsibility are additionally compensated. Together, these factors are what determine the employee’s salary and ensure just pay practices across the organization.
