Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity

Character Mapping as a service, and Mariel Pastor as its founder, are dedicated to values that promote inclusivity.  We embrace principles and practices that are fundamentally anti-oppressive with an aim to restore a sense of wholeness and balance on all levels of human relationships, and we do so wholeheartedly.  We commit to establishing a culture where all persons feel valued, understood and respected.  

We seek to connect with storytellers from a wide range of backgrounds, including those who differ by race, class, age, size, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, and physical abilities and neurotypes. Our commitment to inclusion comes not only from a desire to counter the many ways that individuals and whole communities are denied opportunities, but also from the knowledge that working with storytellers from a variety of backgrounds enriches our lives, and fosters more vibrant stories representing diverse global realities. ​

We recognize that establishing a culture that promotes open-mindedness, compassion and inclusivity requires a commitment from each of us to our personal growth, internally and relationally.  To support this effort, we are dedicated to on-going education about equity, inclusivity, and the forces of oppression on all systemic levels. We know that doing so will only enhance the evolution of Character Mapping as well.
