Who We Are

Diversity and Inclusion

NEW: TNC's First DEIJ Annual Report

Find stories and learnings from across the globe featuring Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice projects and reflections.


The Nature Conservancy values dignity and respect for all.

We believe conservation is best advanced when diverse teams, partners, and local communities are working together to better understand and protect our planet. In support of TNC’s values and mission, the Global Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (GDEI) team is dedicated to an inclusive workplace where our staff, volunteers, and external partners represent, appreciate, and uplift the communities we serve and intend to serve. To develop our staff's cultural competencies and build on our DEI foundation across the globe, the GDEI team is currently working on measuring DEI across TNC, building up our team, investing in trainings and educational opportunities, and strengthening our GDEI vision. Reach out to gdei@tnc.org with any questions or feedback.

Our work would not be possible without the incredible partnership with our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs).
