CTNC’s Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace, and Race Equity Practice: Conservation Trust for North Carolina values diversity in all its many forms: diversity of demographic identity, experience, and thought. We seek to create an inclusive work culture where all staff and board members are valued for the diversity they bring to the organization.
We are committed to conserving land in ways that inspire and enable people to build resilient, just communities. We commit to using our institutional power and influence to push for systemic change where all people – regardless of race – share in the benefits of land conservation. At the personal level, we call upon all staff and board members to commit to ongoing learning about racial oppression and ongoing efforts to realize racial equity in conservation. To do this, we’re committed to our own process of transformation and holding ourselves accountable to leading with values instead of outcomes. We measure our success by how well we live up to our values and how much we change the future through applying those values to conservation actions.
