About DEIJ @ IonE

IonE’s mission is to help people and planet prosper together. We believe we are most likely to achieve our mission and realize our vision when we integrate diverse perspectives into our work and our workplace. We work to continually educate ourselves about the systems and structures that may discourage a diverse, equitable and inclusive community at IonE. We are committed to supporting a diverse and inclusive work environment and to collaboration with those most affected by the environmental and climate issues we address in our work.

Come to IonE’s next DEIJ meeting!
