The inclusion team is a representation of the Presence team as a whole - passionate, solution oriented, and growth-minded. Through a comprehensive inclusion initiative, we’ve been able to intentionally scale and adapt our culture with each new team member. Understanding that there’s no one formula for success, we’re always open to new ideas, and provide everyone with the opportunity to identify and create the change.
A rapidly growing team, we’re committed to onboarding people who will add to our culture in meaningful ways. If you’re a solution oriented person looking to help solve some of the biggest challenges in Student Affairs, all while being on the frontier of inclusive culture creation, then check out what roles we’re hiring for here.
