Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Clean Wisconsin is committed to equity and inclusion. Our mission to protect and preserve the clean water, air, and special places of our state is non-discriminatory.
Everyone, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, nationality, ethnicity, citizenship, ability, income, and religion, deserves the right to breathe clean air, drink clean water, and live in a state which embraces a healthy environment as a part of a strong economy. Clean Wisconsin works to address environmental injustices, from issues such as climate change, access to clean drinking water, and air pollution and its health effects by elevating and empowering marginalized voices.
Clean Wisconsin is dedicated to addressing implicit biases through implementing equitable hiring practices and mindfully approaching our program work. We do not tolerate harassment, racism, discrimination, oppression, or retaliation. We are aware of the systemic racism and prejudices within our society, as well as the historic lack of inclusion in the environmental community. We are working to address the intersection of these biases, because we understand that the true heart of environmental work means advocating for those who have been historically marginalized and most disproportionately impacted by environmental harms, past, present, or future. Advancing equity is essential to our work.
