We Value Diversity

MFH is an equal opportunity employer that values diversity and strives for authentic inclusion.

MFH is committed to salary equity, and compensation will be determined based upon an independent assessment of qualifications relative to the position’s responsibilities. The Foundation’s compensation philosophy can be viewed here.

Our Diversity & Inclusion Plan outlines our commitment to building a workplace culture that is representative of the diverse communities and populations we serve in Missouri. The plan allows for flexibility to change over time as goals are achieved, priorities change, and new opportunities present themselves.
