Co-creating diverse spaces that value individual differences and similarities it's directly linked to our ability to foster and promote a culture of diversity and inclusion in all our environments.
Engaging the Latinx population - and all communities - in conservation is a necessity, diverse spaces result in better understanding, increase innovation and cooperation, and long-lasting results. In order to do it, we must learn to approach this work authentically and inclusively. Building a practice of equity and inclusion requires us to look inside ourselves, to evaluate our own behaviors, patterns, and mental models and to understand how this permeates our daily lives.
