Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Menagerie, we are committed to respecting and appreciating what makes people different in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, and national origin.

Unlike most centralized companies that make commitments to diversity and inclusion, diversity and inclusion are part of our core. It is a natural extension and result of our evolution.

How? The Menagerie voting engine enables the anonymization of individuals. For Menagerie communities that choose anonymization via the Menagerie UX, superficial identifiers that hold society back and may discriminate against parts of society become obsolete.

The work is what matters in a Menagerie organization, not the identity of the person who does the work. Your reputation and pay are based on your contributions.  

Menagerie co-founder Dr. Wulf Kaal wrote a seminal academic paper on this subject called "Blockchain Technology And Race In Corporate America."

Decentralized organizations, he wrote, "Support non-discriminatory practices and limit the impact of existing corporate hierarchy effects on disenfranchised communities... Equality is a natural byproduct of the blockchain-driven evolution of the crypto economy. Blockchain’s trust-enhancing consensus model, smart contracting in anonymous networks, and DAOs allow for the evolution of a more equal society. Human biases are less likely to survive in a decentralized networked society which benefits not only minorities but society at large."

An organization set up through Menagerie enables anyone to join. You don't need to know anything about the background, education, social status, or connections of a given person.

People are at the center of creating Menagerie organizations, and a deep diversity of ideas, lived experiences, and characteristics help ensure these new organizations are not only inclusive and equitable but are created to reflect the goals and desires of unique groups of people.    

Menagerie combines human creativity, technology, social impact, and the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion to create communities and experiences that elevate the way people interact with the world and each other.
