Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The Carter Center's mission is to be transparent, compassionate, and committed to building a workplace that values diversity and fosters equity, inclusion, and respect for all. We empower all staff to realize their potential through a culture based on trust and integrity. Please find our DEI definitions, mission statement, and values below.


Diversity: race, ethnicity, culture, socioeconomic status, professional rank, religion, disability, gender, sexual orientation, family/marital status, color, age, and political preference.

Equity: fairness and justice in treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all.

Inclusion: an active, intentional, and ongoing practice that strives to create an environment where everyone feels appreciated, respected, valued, and supported regardless of their background.
