9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. – Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Session, Queta González from The Center for Diversity & the Environment
The Center for Diversity & the Environment’s mission is to harness the power of racial and ethnic diversity to transform the U.S. environmental movement by developing leaders, catalyzing change within institutions, and building alliances. Join Queta Gonzalez in creating a space for dialogue and exploring the gifts of equity, diversity, and inclusion. This workshop is designed to meet participants wherever they are on the path to cultural competency, and clarify how diversity, equity, and inclusion creates resilience in the field of EE and the world.
Gloria Anzaldúa said, “I change myself, I change the world.” Transforming systems to address equity, inclusion and diversity starts at the individual level. If we seek effective and lasting change within our organizations, our communities, and across the environmental movement, each of us must be willing to begin with the most important and potentially challenging work: ourselves. This workshop is designed for those who are interested in exploring the rationale for equity, diversity and inclusion in environmental education.
Developing your personal and organizational “why” for equity, diversity and inclusion is an evolving process and one that supports individuals and organization in the transformational work of equity, diversity and inclusion. We will move from the “why” to strategies for strengthening your equity, diversity and inclusion efforts.
