We at Counter Tools know that tobacco- and alcohol-related health problems disproportionately affect people of color, LGBTQ people, and other marginalized groups. Structural elements—both governmental and organizational policies and practices, including those that historically have and continue to disadvantage certain groups, along with industry targeting—impact exposure, availability, and access to both healthy and harmful products. We want our work with our partners and clients to reflect the communities we collectively serve, address health disparities, and strive toward a more equitable world. We strongly encourage applications from diverse individuals, including but not limited to diversity in such characteristics as race/ethnicity, national origin, age, socioeconomic background, religion, creed, veteran’s status, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and disability.
