Climate change disproportionately impacts communities of color, so we’re looking for candidates deeply committed to reducing emissions and to racial justice. We especially encourage people of color, women, and members of other communities underrepresented in startups to apply. Research shows that women and people of color are less likely to think they are qualified for a position after reading a list of requirements like the one above.
