TO ADDRESS DIVERSITY LEADERSHIP GAP IN GREEN STEM
(BlackNews.com) — MobilizeGreen, a national non-profit on a mission to jumpstart green careers for diverse young people who want to change the world, will host its 2018 Annual Conference and Diversity Career Fair at American University (AU) and the University of the District of Columbia (UDC). March 22-23, at AU Constitution Hall, East Campus Commons, 3319-3395 New Mexico Ave NW, Washington, DC.
In response to the gap that continues to exist between leadership in the environmental sector and people of color, the theme of this year’s event is, “Achieving Environmental Equity: Can it be Done Now?” and the title of the luncheon keynote is “Dissecting The Intersection of Race, Environmental Equity, and Pop Culture.”
MobilizeGreen believes that, in order to build our society on a greener and more just foundation, young people must be provided an opportunity to help shape sustainability and environmental decisions in both the government and private sectors. And, these young people must reflect America’s rapidly changing, rich demographic mix.
