It is critical for New York City’s environmental institutions and organizations to reflect the rich diversity of the city. Representation is important for ensuring that a broad range of perspectives are included in decision-making on policies, programs, and funding that impact the environment and that outcomes are equitable and just for BIPOC communities. Career and leadership development programs, as well as internal efforts to transform institutional cultures, continue to be avenues to elevate BIPOC leadership in the environmental sector, in particular during a time of mayoral transition, the “great resignation,” and as historically white-majority institutions continue efforts to diversify their staff. Join us to hear from key environmental institutions and organizations who are addressing these issues through different career pathway programs.

  • Understanding the opportunities and challenges related to increasing the racial/ethnic diversity of New York City’s environmental institutions and organizations
