The National Audubon Society is seeking a Chief Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Officer (CEDIO) who can deliver the fulfillment of the vision to drive change in racial equity by enabling the organization to act in solidarity and with intentionality to move initiatives forward in unison.  For Audubon, it is a moral and business imperative to represent and reflect human diversity, embracing it in all the communities where the organization works, in order to achieve its conservation goals.  Today, the National Audubon Society is has publicly committed to becoming an antiracist institution in everything they do internally and externally. Conservation, and the enjoyment of birds, cannot be held separate from racial equity any longer. The organization is committed to doing its best to right wrongs and build a bright future.  This includes acknowledging the racist actions of its 19th-century namesake John James Audubon. Equity, diversity, and inclusion are core Audubon values. They are also business essentials. Respect, inclusion, and opportunity for people and perspectives from different cultures, attracts the best ideas and harnesses the greatest passion to shape a healthier, more vibrant future for all who share this planet. The birds Audubon protects differ in color, size, behavior, range, and countless other ways. By honoring and celebrating the equally remarkable diversity of the human species, Audubon strives to bring new creativity, innovation, and impact to its work throughout the hemisphere.  Only by creating a truly inclusive workplace, with equitable access to career development opportunities for all staff, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, or sexual orientation can Audubon bring greater diversity to staff at all levels—from junior positions to senior management Audubon’s 34 nature centers include 14 in urban locations like Dallas, Seattle, and Columbus, Ohio, as well as others in rural areas from the Mississippi Gulf coast to the Nebraska prairie. This network makes the organization local in an astoundingly diverse array of communities throughout the U.S. and enables it to share the wonder of birds and nature with more than one million visitors of different ages and back-grounds each year. Audubon’s staff, chapters, and volunteers augment the work of its centers by spearheading education and outreach programs in communities without a center—from the Latino community surrounding California’s Salton Sea to African-American neighborhoods in Chicago. Audubon’s goal is to engage and mobilize people around the most pressing environmental issues where they live. Fundamental to the organization’s mission, is the recognition that it is a part of the communities it serves, with local relationships that give it a platform to be an influential advocate for environmental justice and equity.
