Fish and wildlife agencies have a public trust responsibility to manage wildlife for the people of our nation. However, the racial, ethnic, and gender disparities between those who are currently engaged with agencies and their programs, and the rest of the population, highlights a fundamental gap in fulfilling public trust responsibilities to all citizens. The long-standing under-representation of women, African-Americans, Native Americans, Latinxs, Asians, and other minorities in the ranks of agencies is widely recognized. Similarly, a disproportionate majority of people who participate in and are directly served by agency programs are white. The disenfranchisement of minorities in conservation reflects a broader issue in the United States, where recent events have refocused attention on social justice, equity, and inclusion for people of color in the United States. Across the country, institutions are being challenged to address disparities in how they treat and serve minorities. Resolving these legacy issues will not be simple or achieved quickly, but those difficulties cannot be an excuse for inaction. In our field, the Fish and Wildlife Relevancy Roadmap provides guidance agencies can use to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion in conservation.
