The Culture

The best thing about working at Conservation Colorado is: Our staff! . . . ‘s dogs!
When we’re not working, we’re: Spending time outdoors, whether in the backyard or the backcountry, with family, friends, and loved one, and with our beloved pets
What we’re reading: Each other’s funny google hangout messages
What we’re listening to: Podcasts that are expanding our minds and challenging our personal biases
If they made a movie about our workplace, it would be called: The Ladder of Engagement
Inclusion in the outdoors matters because: Healthy environments foster healthy communities, but not all Coloradans have access to a clean and safe environment. Communities of color, indigenous communities, and families living on lower incomes are far more likely to live and work near

pollution. These inequities are caused by an ongoing history of environmental racism. That’s why we must actively work to engage all Coloradans in our work to build a more powerful conservation movement.   

Five years down the line, it’s our hope that: We’ve broken down, and are continuing to break down, historic and systemic barriers that exist between our communities and access to a healthy environment. We are part of the solution to fostering equity, diversity, and inclusiveness to ensure all Coloradans are fully represented and engaged in our work to protect this state we love.
