Sustainability, Diversity and Inclusion
Sustainability in its essential definition means ensuring that all people, intergenerationally, have access to safe communities, fair wages, clean air, healthy natural spaces, clean water and food that is both nutritional and affordable.
Engaging a diverse and inclusive range of participation in our work ensures our solutions benefit from the collective wisdom of our community. Sustainability efforts, when successful, employ multiple lenses of perspective. Because of this, our office is committed to creating and preserving safe, equitable and inclusive social environments — whether within our office, among our volunteers or our partners.
In hiring, the Office of Sustainability is committed to creating and equitably supporting inclusive opportunities and hosting a diverse team. We welcome applications to our internships, staff positions, volunteer leadership positions and other engaged opportunities regardless of age, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, medical history, and other non-merit characteristics.
