COMMITMENT TO INCLUSION, DIVERSITY, EQUITY, & ACCESSIBILITY

Direct recognizes that all oppressions are linked, and that disability rights are inextricably connected to human and civil rights.

Therefore, we strongly encourage applications from qualified applicants with disabilities and those who identify with other marginalized communities.
