Intersectional Environmentalism within Corporations
Join Leah Thomas, as she discusses Intersectional Environmentalism within Corporations.

Intersectional environmentalism, coined by Leah Thomas, is an inclusive version of environmentalism that advocates for both the protection of people and the planet. It identifies the ways in which injustices happening to marginalized communities and the earth are interconnected. It brings injustices done to the most vulnerable communities, and the earth, to the forefront and does not minimize or silence social inequality. Intersectional environmentalism advocates for justice for people + the planet.

This event is co-sponsored by the MPA in Environmental Science and Policy Program and the MS in Sustainability Management Program.
