Join the MountainTrue Team
MountainTrue’s staff care deeply about our environment and the communities of Western North Carolina. As a team, we’re committed to hard work but also having fun with each other. Accountability, camaraderie and fidelity to our Guiding Principles: this is what makes MountainTrue a wonderful place to work. Does this sound like the right fit for you? Then, maybe you too are MountainTrue.
MountainTrue is committed to the principles of equity, inclusion, and non-discrimination. We do not discriminate against individuals, communities, or organizations on the basis of race, color, sex, age, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, or physical/mental disability.
We recognize and honor diverse cultures and traditions and proactively seek individuals for all aspects of our work from varied backgrounds for the greater enrichment of the organization. To address structural bias, MountainTrue intentionally invests in diverse leadership within our programs, staff, board, volunteer base, and membership.
We are committed to a proactive and strategic equity approach at an institutional and societal level. We understand this work to be an ongoing learning journey as we build an understanding of how structural differences in power impact and inform the work we do in Western North Carolina. Our board and staff work together to continually build our analysis and invest in capacity building opportunities (e.g., workshops) that can deepen and inform our commitment to fostering equity through our work.
