Rosita Scarborough has 18 years of experience in numerous roles with The Nature Conservancy, having started her career as an Office Manager with a field-based program in Florida, becoming the first TNC employee to be permanently stationed in Africa and responsible for establishing our organizational infrastructure on the continent, and rising the ranks to become one of TNC’s Executive Team members, where she currently serves as interim Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer.

Rosita started her career with The Nature Conservancy right out of college and pursued her passion for conservation based on her life and experiences growing up in Kenya where her mom and aunt established a grassroots conservation movement centered around human rights, environmental advocacy and civic empowerment. Her current role with the Conservancy entails strategic leadership for the organization’s Global Diversity Equity and Inclusion team and function with global responsibilities for internal change and learning.
