We recognize the contribution of Indigenous communities, BIPOC, and people from the LGBTQIA+ communities in the use of psychedelics as healing and transformative substances in our society. For millennia they have worked with these substances and have taken great care to pass down their wisdom to next generations. Yet, these groups are underrepresented in the psychedelic renaissance, especially in the developments made within the medical-therapeutic approaches to working with psychedelics
We acknowledge the importance of listening to, amplifying, and empowering the voices of historically disenfranchised, marginalized, and oppressed communities. We also firmly believe that communities understand their own needs best. As such, we aspire to hire for a diverse psychedelic future. People from varied cultural backgrounds, beliefs, walks of life, ethnicities, races, nationalities, genders, ages, sexual orientations, abilities, and educational and professional backgrounds will together be better able to understand the complexity and nuance of the work at hand, by contributing views and practices that are often embedded in lived experiences and particular perspectives.
