Conservation Insight stands by the movement of Black Lives Matter. We commit to continuing to listen, learn, and enact change until our society and country overcomes systemic injustice towards all people of color. We recognize that people of color are underrepresented in the field of conservation, and we have a responsibility to work to change this.
Among our first steps,
We know this work requires collaboration and many of you have ideas and experiences to share. Please email us with your ideas and insights.
Over the past couple of years the Black Lives Matter movement swept across our country, and Conservation InSight joined in the movement to help make much needed changes in our society. In 2022, we want to voice our concern over another injustice in our country that is affecting the LGBTQ community. As states across the country attempt to pass discriminatory laws targeting transgender people and attempting to set our country on a backwards path with regards to LGBTQ rights, including in the State of Florida where we conduct some of our scientific research, Conservation InSight wanted to voice our support for the LGBTQ community as part of our Diversity Commitment.
