Through this report, we share our progress on our goals for our people as openly as we share our progress in our work for farmers. Our ability to make farmers more prosperous depends on our team. Over the last year, we’ve grown to almost 10,000 talented staff. We believe in honoring each staff member as the unique individual they are and supporting them to develop into who they can become.
In 2020-21, we shared the urgency of building a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive One Acre Fund. In 2021-22, we moved from vision to action. In particular, we made significant improvements to equity in staff pay, benefits and performance management, advancing two of our core commitments to staff. We defined policies we can explain clearly and uphold proudly for every staff member, at every level.
