Diversity and Inclusion
Why make diversity and inclusion a priority?
Access to, exposure to, and resonance with meaningful outdoor experiences and environmental education for all Delawareans regardless of their backgrounds is fundamental to creating an environmentally aware, engaged, and caring population. We feel all Delawareans have a right to access to the uplifting, inspirational, and enlightening wonders of nature.
Too often there is little diversity within the community most engaged in conservation and access to meaningful outdoor experiences is not always as inclusive of all parts of the population as it should be.
We are a patchwork of people of different experiences, backgrounds, orientations, and philosophies in Delaware. Our positive impact on future generations’ awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the environment will only be stronger by striving to be inclusive of this diversity and embracing and incorporating it into what we do.
