By ensuring that diverse stakeholders and perspectives are represented in our efforts, Wildlands Network will align with the shifting demographics within the countries in which we work. Our organization places a high value on biodiversity and coexistence with other species and agrees we should value and reflect cultural diversity as well.
We recognize this requires intentional internal reflection about our language(s), actions and spaces in support of this goal. Equally important is external outreach seeking authentic engagement around Equity, Diversity and Inclusion issues. In general, many minorities and members of marginalized groups are underrepresented in conservation efforts; Wildlands Network strives to be innovative in helping to reverse this reality. An organization that wishes to be diverse, equitable and inclusive must be proactive, while adaptive and receptive to feedback that prompts us to re-evaluate our policies and actions.
