Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

CSDP is committed to a culture that values differences and fosters inclusion. We recognize that past inequities have led to injustices and a lack of accountability related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access in the conservation movement. We believe that the conservation of biological diversity is best advanced by the inclusion and contributions of people of diverse backgrounds, experiences, beliefs, and cultures.

Our volunteer, internship, and employment positions are open to all. We value diversity and do not permit any discrimination against applicants, employees, or volunteers based on race, creed, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, gender, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, disability, neurodiversity, ethnicity, marital status, familial status, economic circumstances, and/or veteran status. We are grateful for the opportunity to live and work on traditionally Native lands, including those belonging to the O’odham, Tohono O’odham, and Pascua Yaqui.
