“At Starbucks, creating a culture of diversity and inclusion where everyone is welcome is part of our Mission. From our company’s beginnings, we have always strived to be the example for being a for profit company that leads through the lens of humanity.

Having the opportunity to bring Kristin and Kara onto our team at Starbucks Cambridge has truly added an element of positivity and humanity that we would not have found without our great relationship with The Arc of the Central Chesapeake Region.

Kristin and Kara bring to the table a passion to learn that truly is rare. They are the first to volunteer for any new learning or experience, and are also encouraging excitement from our other store partners. In the short three month both girls have been employed at Starbucks Cambridge, we have seen an increase in employee morale which has led to an increase in many of the metrics we our measure our success with.

Again, I am so thankful to The Arc of the Central Chesapeake Region for believing in my team and I and allowing us to share in the sheer joy that is workplace inclusion. We have learned life lessons that will carry with us throughout our lives. We are a living testament that proves inclusion is truly meant for everyone. “
