One Earth Future (OEF) prioritizes diversity and inclusion in our policies and our work. We believe that in order to be successful as an organization, we must strive for inclusive, collaborative, and stakeholder-driven approaches to our work. Considering the perspectives and needs of diverse groups is crucial to understanding the true nature of the problems we face at home and in the communities where we work globally in order to find effective, sustainable, and network-driven solutions. OEF acknowledges that in order to achieve our programmatic goals, we must be committed to building a culture of inclusivity and equality as part of our own operational values.
