Serving Our Community

“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill

“Gunnison’s philanthropic efforts are rooted in our commitment to helping and fostering connections with the communities we serve and where our employees work and live. We also strive to engage and support organizations that address and correct social injustice, protect the human rights of the most vulnerable people in American society, and uplift and bridge the opportunity gap. In doing so, we are able to draw upon Gunnison’s strengths including our employees and partners to deliver an even greater impact.” – Gil Dussek, Gunnison CEO

Diversity and Inclusion

This is truly a moment of consciousness for the US, where we all acknowledge the injustices and inequalities in our land of the free and accept our role in perpetuating them or turning a blind eye.

There is no uncertainty or any ambiguity about Gunnison’s values: We do not tolerate racism or racial harassment of any kind — and never will.

Gunnison is comprised of a highly diverse team from all different parts of the world, with varying expertise and life experiences, 100% of whom believe in equality, fairness, and justice.

Gunnison has always been (and will continue to be) an organization committed to diversity, equality, and inclusion. We aim to provide a welcoming environment for everyone: employees, consultants, subcontractors, clients, and anyone who walks through our doors, physical or virtual. No matter what, we strive to uphold our work value of “Progress, not Perfection” in our diversity journey.
