Equity and accessibility
Paid Leave Oregon is committed to equity, inclusion, and shared humanity as part of our core values to guide our vision that every Oregonian has time and support for themselves and their loved ones.
Diversity: We value individual lived experiences and commit to a workforce that reflects everyone in the communities we serve.
Equity: We build policies, practices, and resources that center people most impacted by decision-making.
Inclusion: We construct an environment where everyone belongs, feels valued, and is heard.
In all we do, we seek to prioritize those who have been historically underserved and under-resourced by addressing practices, cultural norms, and structural barriers that perpetuate inequities.
We are committed to building trust within the communities we serve, and we will further our mission to ensure universal and equitable access to Paid Leave benefits.
We are committed to continuous learning and continuous improvements and will acknowledge when we make a mistake.
We recognize institutional injustices persist, and we seek to redress these wrongs with a sustained commitment to advance initiatives for diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Paid Leave Oregon is committed to providing all customers, including individuals with disabilities, equal access to web-based information and services. We always seek to ensure our website offers an accessible experience to our entire audience.
