"For The Nature Conservancy, becoming one global organization means more than working in all habitat types across the globe, and more than working together as one team committed to solving global conservation problems. It also means having a diverse workforce representative of the global population.
"Increasing staff diversity is not only the right thing to do, but essential to achieving our mission. Global threats to the environment affect people of all backgrounds, beliefs and cultures. Making a real difference will require the rich blend of perspectives, ideas and viewpoints that only a truly diverse workforce can provide."
President and CEO, The Nature Conservancy
"One of the core values of The Nature Conservancy is our commitment to diversity. This commitment says that we recognize and support that biological diversity conservation is best advanced by the leadership and contributions of men and women of diverse backgrounds, beliefs and cultures. We are committed to recruiting, hiring and mentoring staff to create an inclusive organization that reflects our global character.
"As the staff of the largest conservation organization in the world, we believe the differences in backgrounds, heritage, ethnicity and gender of our partners, donors and employees contribute to a robust work environment — one that fosters the creativity, innovative thinking and entrepreneurial spirit that contribute to the success of our mission. As we grow and change, we look forward to being part of the rich experience the differences in people brings."
