About Save the Children
Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In the
United States and around the world, we give children a healthy
start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.
We do whatever it takes for children - every day and in times of
crisis - transforming their lives and the future we share.
Our work for children and their families requires that we
commit-at every opportunity-to work together to identify and
dismantle persistent systemic and structural racism, inequality,
and any other forms of discrimination in this country and beyond.
As an anti-racist organization, Save the Children will not tolerate
discrimination in any form-in our employment practices, amongst our
staff, in our leadership or toward the people we serve. We stand in
solidarity with all people to fight for equal rights, justice,
inclusion, and belonging.
We provide equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees
and qualified applicants for employment without regard to race,

sexual orientation, national origin, age, handicap, disability,
marital status, or status as a veteran. Save the Children complies
