The Audubon Society of Portland believes that inspiring all people to love and protect nature is best achieved when we embrace diversity as a value and practice. In the same way an ecosystem needs many types of plants and wildlife, an organization thrives when it includes a diversity of people and perspectives. We recognize that inequities are widespread and create gaps between our present reality and our aspirations. Audubon is committed to: Reflecting the diversity of the community in our board, staff, volunteers, and members. Ensuring our internal culture, business practices, and programs are welcoming and advance our diversity goals. Empowering people to make positive changes in their community and environment.
