    I applied online and was contacted about 1 month after I applied. The first step was a recruiter screening, followed by 1:1 interview with hiring manager, and then a half-day of in-person panel interviews.

There’s still a lot we don’t know about the more than 1,200 species of sharks and rays. We’re helping increase our knowledge of shark population trends, drivers, and abundance. Most recently, Global FinPrint completed it's five year survey of reef sharks across the globe.

Companies that are committing to being a force for change must take steps beyond social media posts. We are working to establish meaningful, concrete actions our organization can take internally and externally that will positively contribute to the fight against racial injustice. To start, we’re organizing allyship events, developing mandatory racial equity training for all employees (on top of our existing DEI strategy, resources, and anti-bias training), and creating processes to increase diversity in the Vulcan supplier network. We are also including more Black and POC voices in content and social media across our ocean health, conservation, and climate change programs, and exploring how and where our community-focused philanthropy can contribute meaningfully to racial equity in the U.S. We’ll share more as our journey continues.
