Woodland and conservation management principles dictate that a diversity of flora, fauna and age structure are inherently valuable to the sustainability and resilience of a woodland.
We are working to apply the same principles to our organisation. To this end, the culture of Cumbria Woodlands values difference (e.g. age, gender identity, race, nationality, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and perspective) as a source of innovation, strength and creativity. This is an on-going process for the team and our leadership to understand how to apply these principles in our work.
In the meantime, we recognise that to be engaged, all members of our team must feel included and valued, and we celebrate a deep sense of pride, passion and belonging.
