About EOC

The Environmentalists of Color network is a response to the lack of diversity in the environmental sector in the Chicagoland area. In May 2013, more than 30 individuals met to share stores about their experience in the environmental field, strengthening personal and cross-organizational relationships to support their work and interests. Today, EOC has more than 600 members.

Environmentalists of Color (EOC) is an interdisciplinary network of leaders of color who are passionate about an array of critical environmental issues, ranging from habitat conservation to environmental justice. We cultivate opportunities for community, support, and professional development so members can thrive in their chosen fields.
