Who we are

The BIPOC Sustainability Collective aims to foster a capacity-building community for BIPOC professionals and activists to connect and seek peer support while navigating largely white environmentalist spaces on the West Coast.

We aim to build a support system, resources, and sense of community among BIPOC working in sustainability, climate action, and environment. We know that one of the most effective ways to move up in organizations and make meaningful change is to have strong, reciprocal and supportive networks. Especially when it’s not always possible to find allies within the organizations we work in.

We strive to break down barriers, elevate underrepresented talent, and drive systemic change, fostering a sustainable future where all communities and cultures thrive in reciprocity with the planet to catalyze an equitable, diverse, and inclusive society. 


Our current programming offers networking events and we are working on expanding our resources and capacity.

Past events

Our work takes place on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We recognize the enduring presence of Indigenous peoples on this land and honor their stewardship past, present, and future.



In 2021, we started out as a Facebook group, and over time, we've evolved into a thriving in-person community of more than 200 members and counting. We're incredibly grateful to our partners and collaborators for their role in fueling our growth.
