Uniqueness is powerful. Inclusivity is our future.
Here at The Haven we strive to be welcoming in all we do. One of our core values is inclusivity and The Haven seeks to be a space where community that supports social and economic equity and freedom of self can flourish.
At The Haven, our mission is to help Bend to become the first metro area in the country to reach gender and racial parity in representation in entrepreneurship, business, community leadership and politics.
The Haven is committed to inclusion and welcomes members of all races, ages, cultures, abilities, ethnicities or nationalities, gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations, marital statuses, religious affiliations, and socioeconomic statuses.
One of the ways the Haven works to foster inclusivity and even the playing field is by offering fellowships. Learn more about our fellowships and how to apply here.
Our commitment & principles
- We respect and affirm the dignity of each member of our community.
- We are committed to providing and promoting an environment free of discrimination by addressing issues of equity and justice in our community through our events, community outreach, and all interactions with members and guests.
- We acknowledge we have a lot of work to do to achieve our vision of inclusion, and so we are committed to the ongoing education of our staff and members as a part of the process of developing and maintaining a community that provides an affirming co-working environment for all.
- We will continually challenge ourselves, and others, in an environment of mutual concern and respect for the free expression of all individuals.
Disparaging remarks about anyone based on their race, age, culture, ability, ethnicity or nationality, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, marital status, religious affiliation, and socioeconomic status, whether spoken, implied or written, are unacceptable.
