The Center for Diversity and the Environment’s Environmental Professionals of Color (EPOC) network is a network by and for people of color and includes over 1,000 leaders nationwide who are often the only person or one of the few people of color working at their environmental institutions. The purpose of this network is to provide a safe space for connecting people of color across the U.S. to catalyze change by surviving, thriving, innovating, and leading in environmentalism. EPOC provides support, opportunities to grow and develop as leaders, and tools to be effective change agents. Its members work on a diverse array of environmental issues, including but not limited to conservation (air, water, land, marine, biodiversity), global warming, sustainability, environmental health, environmental education, environmental justice, and social justice. They fill a unique and valuable role as bridges between the environmental community and communities of color.
