ALL VOICES IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGEClimate change is the
greatest challenge of our lifetimes. Woodwell Climate Research
Center (Woodwell) understands that the climate crisis—from causes
to consequences—is inextricably linked with persistent social
injustice. Effectively addressing either requires addressing both.
The climate crisis demands that we bring to bear all of the
knowledge, expertise, innovation, and creativity that we can
collectively muster, and those who have been marginalized and
disproportionately impacted must be heard.The work Woodwell
does—the questions we ask, the ways we seek answers, and the
strategies we put forward—is stronger when shaped by a diversity of
knowledge, perspectives, and experiences. We strive to welcome,
respect, and amplify differing voices. We value individuals as they
are, with all their differences in race, age, ethnicity, gender
identity, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, language, and
mental and physical abilities.Woodwell acknowledges that our
organization, and the scientific community more broadly, have a
long way to go in living up to these ideals. We approach the work
of improving our organization with the same ambition and commitment
to systemic change that we bring to addressing climate change.We
will inevitably make mistakes, but we will continue to listen,
learn, and do this critical work. We understand that this work
requires an ongoing commitment from each and every one of us. We
are actively engaged in building and sustaining an equitable and
inclusive culture within our organization, and in fostering greater
diversity in climate science.
