Our People

We celebrate the dignity of all work and the dignity of every worker—especially those with overlooked skills.

Our people are passionate and driven, with experience, skills, and life journeys as unique as the STARs we serve. We’re looking for individuals who believe in building a labor market that’s more inclusive of STARs and want to stretch their professional skills in a collaborative, diverse, and dynamic environment.

Diversity in our team:


of our staff is BIPOC:
Our team represents the diversity and skills of the national workforce.


are STARs:
We don’t just tell other employers how valuable STARs can be—we demonstrate it by including them at all levels of our organization.


are Women:
Gender diversity is a fundamental part of our success and our mission.
