Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

The Association of Oregon Recyclers' (AOR) goal is to create an organization where everyone feels a sense of belonging and their perspectives are valued as part of our organization’s culture. 

An integral part of AOR’s mission is to “Enhance our understanding and connections to diverse perspectives” as we strive to help build a system of sustainable materials management. 

We acknowledge that AOR’s equity journey is ongoing. 

Over the last year we have worked with Start Consulting to help guide the work of our Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Committee. Through this process, the EDI committee authored an Equity Statement for AOR, which is a living document and will grow and change with the organization. AOR hosted an Equity Statement feedback session and members also provided written comments that are being integrated into the statement. Since this is a living document, feedback is continually encouraged and welcome.
