The Sevilleta Long Term Ecological Research Project encourages and embraces diversity among our principal investigators, postdocs, students, technicians, and participants across our collaborative institutions.

We do this through place-based research and education, community science engagement, local to global community building, and continual examination and refinement of our recruitment, hiring, on-boarding, and participant code-of-conduct procedures.

Diversity includes groups defined by race, nationality, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, language, religion, disability and/or health status, veteran status, geographic origin, and socio-economic status. We strive to embrace the perspectives that come from these backgrounds, expertise, and experiences.

Our science is enriched by a broad range of approaches and contributions. From these, we all cultivate new capabilities and, collectively, make possible our best and most accessible scientific advances, outreach engagements, and educational experiences. To this end, we at the SEV LTER aim to 1) provide a safe, equitable, and inclusive work environment through deliberate actions that are tailored to the demands of a field work environment, 2) celebrate our different and individual perspectives, and 3) go above and beyond the status quo to achieve diverse representation in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) to correct imbalances in opportunity.
