Nature and Health (N&H) is committed to the institutional practice of diversity and equity. We honor, value, and strive to embrace diverse and equitable learning environments, promote access, justice, and opportunity for all. Diversity and equity expand our collective perspective.

N&H acknowledges the Coast Salish peoples of this land, the land which touches the shared waters of all tribes and bands within the Suquamish, Tulalip, and Muckleshoot nations. We have a responsibility to acknowledge our Indigenous connections, as well as, histories of dispossession and forced removal that have allowed for the growth and survival of this institution. We recognize that the social construction of ableism, institutional racism, and cisgender shape history and society. We engage with community partners with multiple systems of knowledge, activities, experiences, and ideas. N&H actively weaves our commitment to diversity into education, organization, outreach, practices, policy, and research approaches.

N&H Equity and Racial Justice Task Force launched in September 2020 to build and strengthen our scholarly transdisciplinary relationships.

Nature and Health Wins is a new annual award that recommends individuals, communities, and organizations to receive an award for demonstrating a commitment to anti-racism, equity, nature, and health.
