Rachel Flores

Vanderbilt University

  • Environmental Sociology
  • Human & Org Development

In the future, Rachel plans to go into public service with a focus on environmental justice. She is passionate about food security, food waste, and other issues surrounding the food system, and hopes to continue learning about different ways to address these problems. No matter the method, she appreciates the value of working with communities rather than for them to advocate for environmental and social justice.

Support the Conservation Scholars Program

The Conservation Scholars Fund directly supports students who are pursuing a career in conservation through the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington. Effective conservation strategies are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Yet, the conservation community does not reflect the collective voice of our country. Without a significant, serious and immediate increase in diversity and inclusion, the conservation community will become a movement of the past instead of a guiding principle of the future. Our program aims to change that.
