Commitment to You
At LER, our hiring practices are ethical and inclusive. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, ability, marital status, sexual orientation, military or socio-economic status.
In our coursework, we strive to provide diversity of thought, lived experiences, and perspectives in the carefully culled expert content that you have come to value and expect from us.
But that’s not enough. Our promise and commitment to you goes beyond that.
We believe that the lactation field is bettered by more and diverse voices representing the communities they support.
We believe that equity is an action word and we are devoted to living equity in the way that we do business and cultivate future leaders in the field.
We believe that dismantling systems of oppression requires the removal of barriers for the most marginalized students and communities.
That is our commitment to you. We promise to do better, to be better, and to better equip the field to avail human milk to every tiny human.
