Employer's Approach to Diversity, Equity, & Belonging

Here are some of the ways we have devoted ourselves to learning and partnership at all levels of the organization:
• Staff have been hosting virtual gatherings monthly to learn about and discuss injustice on the land.
• We are providing financial and technical support to help under-represented people purchase or lease land.
• With the Abenaki tribes in Vermont, we are creating policies that clarify access, gathering, and cultural practices on conserved lands.
