Our Mission

EcologyPlus connects diverse college students and early career scientists with timely and relevant career opportunities and a community of peers and professionals in ecology and related careers across all sectors.

What is EcologyPlus?

EcologyPlus is both an alliance and an approach to integrate available partner programs that foster the participation of Black, Indigenous and People of Color in a broad range of career pathways where ecology plays a role. EcologyPlus recognizes the need for diverse ecological expertise in a wide variety of fields.

What We Do

EcologyPlus provides mentoring, networking experiences and timely career resources as participants explore the many exciting facets of ecology and related fields.

We have begun conversations with partners and employers from agencies, nonprofit organizations and business to address systemic barriers to diversity, equity, inclusion and justice in hiring practices and in the workplace.
