More about Learning Without Tears

At Learning Without Tears, we believe that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization is critical to our mission of providing the highest in class educational tools for all children. We strongly believe diversity is multi-dimensional, encompassing not just race and ethnicity, but gender, sexual orientation, religion, experience, age, ability, class, education levels, and more. We believe in embracing individual differences and fostering equity by eliminating barriers that prevent the full participation of everyone we support.

We are a growing, thriving business. We live change. In all cases, we resist becoming comfortable with the status quo.

We drive change by having the courage to change course. Sometimes we change to improve something—our products, our relationships, or our efficiencies. Sometimes we change to pursue a new opportunity or to meet a market challenge. When the opportunity or need for change comes our way, we work to embrace it.
