Emma explores collaboration in the water world: Part 1

Hi everyone!

My name is Emma Fredricks and I am one of the Fall Communications and Development Interns here at the Colorado Water Trust. I’m currently in my final year as a Environmental Studies major at CU Boulder and am passionate about climate change resilience and environmental conservation. These passions developed out of my childhood in Northern California, most of which was spent exploring the outdoors, and my years leading international youth leadership programs and facilitating community development projects through the organization Amigos de las Americas. My experiences have fostered my sense of agency and desire to work for organizations that I believe have strong values and empowering missions – like the Water Trust. Over the next few weeks, I will be taking these passions and applying them to an interview blog series highlighting different leaders in the Colorado water community and the work that they are doing.

Race, diversity, and inclusion in the water world- An Interview with Jojo La from the CWCB

The conservation world is full of diversity (biodiversity, that is), from the thousands of species of fish and birds we vow to protect, to the rare flowers we only find once every two years. While we are blooming with biodiversity, we are significantly lacking in racial diversity, where people of color only make up 16% of the staff in environmental organizations. As I mentioned in my last blog post, I am working on a series about diversity and inclusion in the water world. In this first installment, I had the privilege to sit down (virtually, of course) with Jojo La, the Endangered Species Policy Specialist for the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB).

Tzigane Explores Diversity in the Water World: Part 1

Hello everyone!

My name is Tzigane Martin and I am one of the fall 2020 Communications and Development Interns for Colorado Water Trust. I started in August and will be working with the Water Trust until December when I graduate from the University of Colorado Boulder with a degree in Environmental Studies and International Relations. I’m currently working on a blog series at the Water Trust on diversity in the environmental world in Colorado. As a proud, second-generation Mexican-American, this topic is close to my heart, and something I want to explore even beyond my time at the Water Trust.
