Commitment to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion 

Mass Audubon is devoted to creating a just and equitable workplace that celebrates diversity and fosters a sense of belonging for all employees and job applicants. However, we recognize that the environmental movement and field of conservation have participated in societal systems that limit opportunities and access for many people. To protect the nature of Massachusetts for all people, we must lower barriers that prevent people from accessing nature and participating in this work.

Our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Justice, and Accessibility (DEIJA) Strategic Plan maps out a path to creating a workplace where all forms of diversity are recognized and valued.

    In Your Words

    When I’m planting trees or restoring urban sites, I’m not thinking about how it will impact me in my lifetime; it’s for the people living here in 25, 50, even 200 years. Of course, my role is more than planting trees. I’m connecting Mass Audubon to land agencies, communities, and individuals at local, regional, and national levels for the benefit of urban greenspaces. It’s a big job, but I know that every hour that I’m at work, I’m making an impact.

    In Your Words

    I love that my job always has something new going on; it never gets monotonous and it’s full of exciting work that I get to share with the public. I also get to be creative with a team that is supportive and receptive to my ideas and work in general. I am always proud to tell folks that I work for Mass Audubon because of the important work we do—from donating organic produce to food desert communities, to teaching younger generations how to love and protect nature.
