GET INVOLVED

WISER is starting a movement. Join us. Get involved.

Get involved by partnering with us, staying informed, sharing your story, becoming a volunteer, or working at WISER. Together we can create a world where everyone is respected and has meaningful opportunity to develop his or her gifts. Help us build inclusive communities with equitable access to resources.

Partner with Us

WISER is building a network of partners across the world. There are many ways to partner with WISER. Your school, workplace or local community can participate in our focus groups, key informant interviews and other community-based participatory research activities. You can also request an educational workshop or join our social media campaigns on inclusion. Universities, private businesses and artists have a special role to play too. WISER welcomes partnerships with social science researchers, videographers, photographers, graphic designers, storytellers, songwriters and others. We value our partners and recognize them on our website, annual reports and other marketing material.

Stay Informed

WISER keeps up with the latest research, policies and data on inclusion and exclusion. We are active and making a difference in the local community. We give voice to the untold stories of Everyday People. We recognize community leaders who embody WISER's values of democracy, compassion, courage, faith, service and excellence. We call them WISER Heroes. Each quarter we offer a free electronic newsletter to make sure our supporters stay informed about our work. Join our listserv and you will get the WISER newsletter delivered directly to your email address.

Share Your Story

Your voice matters. This is a safe place to share your story. Whether you are the target of school or workplace bullying, isolated from your community of faith, or discriminated against by society, WISER wants to understand your perspective. Each story will be different. You might be the victim. You might be the aggressor. You might have been both in different settings or stages of your life. Either way, chances are you have a story to tell. WISER invites you to share you story through an original poem, song, drawing, or blog. This is the place to do it.

VOLUNTEER

Volunteering is an excellent way to build inclusive communities. People who volunteer expand their social network, find deeper meaning in helping others, and learn new skills. One in four people in the United States volunteer an hour a week. We encourage you to consider volunteering with WISER. WISER is currently accepting applications for volunteers with a background in research design, social media and graphic design. Volunteers may work up to 20 hours a week in our Arlington, VA office or off-site.
