Building Power: Diversifying The Environmental Movement - People & Policy

  • Date: February 6, 2018
  • Time: 8:30am–1:30pm
  • Location: New York University School of Law | 40 Washington Square South – Vanderbilt Hall | New York, NY

Green 2.0 invites you to an event, hosted by the Institute for Policy Integrity at NYU School of Law, on the lack of diversity in leadership across the environmental movement. Our discussion will bring together environmental leaders from philanthropy, academia, government, and the nonprofit sector to discuss the movement’s pipeline problem and the policy implications of a monolithic movement.

Join us for a day of dynamic panel discussions and keynote speakers. Environmental leaders will explore the movement’s real challenges with diversity and confront the myth that people of color lack interest in the environment. Policy experts will also examine regulatory and legislative challenges, and how greater diversity in strategy and message can help the movement educate and activate our broad base of support.
