Our Culture

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

If we don’t model diversity, equity and inclusion here, we won’t achieve it anywhere – so while we’re making real, lasting change for children, we’re also listening, learning and shaping a culture of belonging. This is a courageous space where you’re empowered to share your voice, because innovation doesn’t just celebrate difference – it thrives on it. Explore our culture.


Child Safeguarding

Save the Children is built on the fundamental belief that all children have the right to be protected from harm, abuse, and exploitation. In recognition of the special vulnerabilities of children, our Policy on Safeguarding and Counter-Human Trafficking and Code of Ethics operationalize Save the Children’s values into behaviors to which all representatives are expected to conform. Any violations of our policies will be treated as a serious infraction and will result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination, and any other available legal remedy. Save the Children has a zero-tolerance approach to child abuse by any of our representatives. Please visit our website’s Child Safeguarding page to learn more.

Employee Affinity Groups

We work with communities that are diverse in culture, perspective and ideas – and we’re committed to building a staff that reflects them. Employee Affinity Groups (EAGs) give our staff and allies opportunities to make deeper connections based on shared characteristics, interests, life experiences and demographic factors, like gender identity, sexual orientation, race and ethnicity. Dive deeper.
