The Organization Founded in 1970, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is the nation’s most effective environmental action organization. Using a lens of justice and equity, NRDC uses law, science, and the support of 13.1 million members and online activists to protect the planet’s wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living things. Today, NRDC’s staff of more than 700 lawyers, scientists, economists, policy and communications experts, and others, work across a wide range of environmental issues, including defending a clean environment, protecting the Earth’s remaining wild areas, and leading the way to innovate solutions on climate change and marine protection. NRDC operates offices in New York, NY; Washington, DC; Chicago; Los Angeles; San Francisco; Bozeman, Montana; and Beijing, and is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion throughout the organization. With dedicated staff working in more than a dozen program areas, we partner with businesses, elected leaders, and community groups on the biggest environmental issues facing our world today. NRDC’s work includes an investment in racial equity through its strategic emphasis on expanding and deepening its partnership with communities that have historically borne a disproportionate burden of environment harms. NRDC focuses on developing programs and policies that address racial equity by acknowledging that these harms have disproportionately affected communities of color working to remove these unequal burdens and end the longstanding pattern of overlooking, ignoring, or actively shutting out the voices and needs of underserved communities. NRDC collaborates with partners to ensure that the transformative benefits resulting from its work are available to all, including cleaner air, healthier homes, good jobs and empowered workers ,pollution-free transportation options, and greater access to affordable renewable energy and energy efficiency.   Our Talent NRDC attracts exceptionally talented people, both those at the top of their field and those who are starting out and show tremendous promise. People here are knowledgeable, dedicated, tenacious, and principled. Most of all, they are deeply committed to protecting the environment, from the senior attorney who wins a ground-breaking lawsuit protecting whales to the program assistant who starts an eco-committee to enhance office recycling practices. Bringing together extraordinary people to realize a common mission creates a vibrant, dynamic workplace. Our offices bustle with team meetings, strategy sessions, and thoughtful deliberation. There is an entrepreneurial spirit running through the halls. People have autonomy to pursue victories, but they also have the support of a national organization behind them. And they have the backing of their colleagues, who proudly cheer them on. Perhaps the best testament to NRDC's workplace culture is the tenure of our staff. Almost 50 people have been with the organization for more than 15 years—12 of them have been here almost from the start in 1970.   The Role Location: This role will ideally be based at NRDC’s New York City head office or Washington DC office, although consideration may be given to other US locations where NRDC has a formal presence.
