Diversity, equity and inclusion

Our commitment to transformative change

Why diversity, equity and inclusion matter: Diverse perspectives, experiences and ideas are essential to developing meaningful and lasting climate solutions. To foster a stronger climate movement, our organization must reflect the world in which we operate — and use our influence to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in all the work we do.

Our path forward: EDF is on a journey to provide equitable opportunities and meaningful support for a staff with a diverse set of experiences, backgrounds, perspectives and insights. We’re committed to making transformative change to ensure a work culture in which everyone feels they belong — and to being transparent about our progress.
