Our commitment to Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
Conservation Northwest / Apr 16, 2019 / Members, Work Updates
Since 2016, our staff, Board of Directors and Board of Advisers have been engaged in an intentional process to advance objectives of Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) within our international organization and the larger environmental and conservation movements.
We’re an organization steeped in collaboration. We recognize that conservation must go hand-in-hand with prosperous communities, and that a healthy, resilient ecosystem is only possible when people of all identities are included.
Through ongoing collaboration with JEDI advisers, trainers and resources, First Nations and Indigenous leaders, and other allies, we’re working to continue and further extend our strategic collaboration with marginalized, underrepresented and disadvantaged communities, and invite new voices and perspectives into our work.
