Our Planet Needs Everyone’s Imagination

Climate disruption, water scarcity, and loss of nature take something away from every human on the planet. Inclusive science helps solve these problems.

We grow and nurture diverse leaders who solve environmental problems and create pathways to sustainability.


“We create opportunities for underrepresented people to gain education and experience that empower them to become the leaders we need now and in the future, and address problems in their communities.”

– Aradhna Tripati
