Culture at Audubon
Audubon's Affinity Groups are employee-led groups based on shared characteristics, experiences, goals or interests. They create dynamic, safe spaces to build community, facilitate personal and professional development, raise awareness of important issues, and effect change – to ensure individuals from all identities thrive at Audubon. Audubon's Affinity Groups include the Access Affinity Group, Alianza Latina Affinity Group, Allyship Affinity Group, Black Affinity Group, Caretakers Affinity Group, Community Service Affinity Group, Early Career Professionals Affinity Group (ECPAG), People of Color (POC) Affinity Group, LGBTQIA++ (Queer) Affinity Group, and Women's Employee Resource Group (WERG).
Gender Equity and Inclusion
Audubon is committed to cultivating a community workplace that is free of discrimination based on gender identity and expression, where all of our flock feels welcome and seen. To that end, we implemented a voluntary initiative for employees—straight and cisgender, and LGBTQIA+ alike—to proactively share their pronouns in email signatures and interactions to create a more affirming workspace. We also have a suite of policies and materials to help support transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming staff members before, during, and after their transition while working for Audubon. These policies also outline the obligations of Audubon’s Human Resources department, supervisors, and other staff and provide guidance and resources to all employees to support our colleagues during their gender transition.
