Timezone:

Eastern

Location:

WebEx Meeting Center (online)

For our next group call addressing Race and Equity issues in environmental work, we will feature a special guest and an important body of research and influence. Whitney Tome, Executive Director of Green 2.0, will lead our discussion. Green 2.0 is influencing how the environmental movement understands barriers and opportunities for creating both inclusive and diverse organizations.

This call will briefly introduce the work of Green 2.0 and landmark reports by Dorceta Taylor of the University of Michigan illustrating hiring and professional development trends for racial diversity in the environmental movement and then the call will be open to Fellows sharing their experiences, challenges and opportunities in this work. Colleagues are invited to the call, and preference will be given to Fellows’ questions.

Suggested reading for the call is:

The State of Diversity in Environmental Organizations, Mainstream NGOS, Foundations and Government Agencies by Dorceta Taylor, U Michigan for Green 2.0 (formerly the Green Diversity Initiative).

New follow-up tracking report on diversity data in the environmental field:
Diversity in Environmental Organizations reporting and Transparency

When we reschedule the call with Erika Zavaleta, we will explore academic pathways for leadership.
