Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at TREC

TREC’s vision is leaders, organizations, and diverse coalitions working effectively for environmental protection, conservation, and sustainability in Western North America. TREC cultivates effectiveness by providing premier capacity building services delivered in-depth and over time.

As a premier capacity building organization, we need to provide services that are ever-expanding in effectiveness, creativity, and innovation. To achieve this, we embody continuous improvement of our individual and collective skills and our services. We consistently challenge ourselves to step fully into innovation—take risks, learn from failures, and celebrate successes.  We live the principles and practices we bring to our clients, never expecting them to do work that we have not done ourselves.

We are committed to enhancing the diversity, equity, and inclusion within TREC to further expand our perspective, creativity, and effectiveness. We strive to create a workplace of generative learning, which only diverse staff, diverse experiences, and an inclusive culture can bring.

TREC is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Our programs and positions are open to all. We value diversity, equity, and inclusion in both policy and practice. TREC does not permit discrimination against applicants or employees on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, medical condition, or disability.

At TREC our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion goes beyond just being in full compliance with employment law, TREC actively cultivates a culture that fully embraces difference, with the commitment that everyone is a valued member of our team and is treated with respect and dignity. We intentionally work to foster a culture of inclusion with openness, honesty, visibility, creativity, and trust as core values.

We are striving to become a multicultural organization, with staff with diverse perspectives and experiences, who are culturally competent. We are developing capacity building services that are culturally responsive, relevant and responsible. We bring DEI training and resources to our clients. We intend for TREC’s DEI initiative to serve as a model for our clients.

We understand that our commitment to diversity and inclusion knows no boundaries. Therefore, we continually work to enhance our understanding and practice of diversity, equity and inclusion for the benefit of our employees, our clients, and the essential work that we all do.
