We view diversity as a strength and recognize that we can only achieve our mission by including the skills and varied perspectives of all people. We understand that environmental burdens and benefits are not equitably distributed and that we have a responsibility to foster inclusive conversations about our marine environment. We strive to create a welcoming and equitable culture as we work together to fulfill the Aquarium’s mission.
The Aquarium’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Council was formally founded in 2018 and is tasked with furthering the Aquarium’s Inclusive Community value.
We’ll provide updates on this page regarding our DEI initiatives as they are available.
The Seattle Aquarium honors our location on the traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples, who stewarded these lands and waters for generations and continue to do so today.
