We embrace each person’s identity, experiences, and abilities, and we commit to cultivating an environment where everyone benefits from opportunity, mutual respect and a sense of belonging.

We are committed to cultivating an environment that promotes diversity, equity and inclusion for our staff, explorers and educators and partners.
