DEI Statement

We are on a journey: Pacific Institute’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Commitment in Action 

The Pacific Institute has a long history of integrating social equity into its water and climate research (History of Pacific Institute Work on Sustainability Equity and Justice 1987 – 2022). Building on this history and recognizing the necessity of organizational evolution, we have employed anti-oppression training, engaged DEI consultants, and formed a dedicated DEI committee. We strive to enhance our work culture, refine internal decision-making processes, and design enduring systems for a lasting DEI commitment. 

As a multi-dimensional organization, we seek to amplify historically underrepresented voices in diverse contexts to ensure inclusivity in both our global and US-based operations. We seek to emphasize the representation of communities affected by socio-economic, sexual, racial, religious and environmental inequalities. 

Our journey towards DEI is an ongoing process, reflective of our commitment to address systemic injustices, strengthen our innovative capacity, and contribute to a more equitable and sustainable future. As the DEI landscape evolves, so will our approach, mirroring our dedication to progressive improvement and inclusivity.  

DEI Statement

The Pacific Institute continues to work toward a future where diversity fuels our innovation, equity informs our research, and inclusion shapes our path forward. Building on our proud history of integrating social equity into our water and climate research, we continually strive to enhance our internal DEI approach, acknowledging that this is an ongoing journey towards progress. By doing so, we aim to foster an environment where every voice is empowered, contributing to a dynamic intersectional approach that spans disciplines and geographies, and is integral to our mission of solving the world’s most pressing water challenges.
