Rainforest Trust values the diversity of our planet and environment and wants our team to reflect the richness of the global population we serve. We believe that striving to maintain a demographically diverse workforce where employees are treated equitably and feel a strong sense of inclusion is not only an ethical imperative but also a key driver of innovation and excellence, enhancing our ability to fulfill our mission of conserving and protecting our natural environment.

We put this belief into action by striving to apply a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens to every aspect of employment, from how we hire and recruit, to how we determine compensation and benefits, to the training and development we offer, and the working conditions we create.

Research shows that while cis-men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalized folks (especially groups that are underrepresented in the conservations field) tend to only apply when they check every box.
