SCBNA’s Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity Committee
SCB North America’s Equity, Inclusion and Diversity Committee exists to facilitate and carry out initiatives designed to promote equity, inclusion and diversity within both SCBNA and will work to increase equity, inclusion and diversity in the field of conservation across all levels – including the public, students, professionals, and leaders in the field. The committee will update this page with EID policies and initiatives as they develop. Looking to the future, the committee plans to increase engagement on these issues within the Society, its events, and within the conservation community at large, together with support from partner organizations including the Diversity Joint Venture, 500 Women Scientists, and others.

SCBNA Allyship Program
The committee recently launched an SCBNA Allyship Program at an NACCB 2020 Interactive Session. The program seeks to promote an understanding of the the challenges faced by diverse communities within conservation, and to motivate dominant demographic groups to support minoritized groups based on this new understanding.
Visit the new Allyship Program webpage for resources and information on how to become involved. The webpage is in its early stages, so please check back often for news and an upcoming video series. SCBNA thanks all of the EID committee volunteers and interactive session participants for their contributions to this program.
