Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Commitment

FFAR envisions a world where everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food grown on thriving farms. By building collaborative partnerships, we support audacious science that tackles today’s food and agriculture challenges. We value and integrate diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) into our efforts in order to ensure our work reaches everyone.

Externally, we hold ourselves accountable to potential partners and stakeholders, by proactively committing time and opportunities to build outreach, programs and relationships that reflect inclusivity and equity.

Within FFAR, we commit to direct and respectful engagement, and to learn, connect and ask questions to educate ourselves about other’s work and experiences. We empower our employees by being clear about roles, expectations and decision-making.

We believe that impact matters more than intent. At FFAR, we are accountable for the impact of our actions and words. We commit to achieving substantive, positive impact, while acknowledging and learning from our mistakes and putting those lessons to work immediately.

As an audacious force in food and agriculture research, we know there is much work to be done when it comes to DEI. We embrace the opportunity and our responsibility to do it.
