Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
Houston Audubon is a regional nonprofit conservation organization focusing on protecting the natural environment for birds and people since 1969. We envision a healthy, thriving Houston Gulf Coast natural environment by leading and nurturing a diverse community that values and supports birds. Our mission and vision can only be achieved when we engage, support, and serve individuals and communities that reflect the diversity of our state and region. This longstanding celebration of diversity in nature fuels an even greater understanding of the beauty and importance of working and recreating alongside individuals of widely diverse backgrounds, experiences, and identities.
Houston Audubon is committed to fostering and nurturing an organizational culture of equity, diversity, and inclusion within our workplace and sanctuaries, and in our work in the community. We believe that the rich blend of ideas, perspectives, and viewpoints that come with diversity are essential to our long-term success. Our values and actions reflect our commitment to diversity and inclusion of all as reflected in our hiring practices, team interaction, and outreach and engagement at large.
