Dear Sustainability Community,
I come to you again. It’s been three years since writing my first article for GreenBiz, “Why diversity is the key to unlocking sustainability.” I provided a quick glimpse of the anxiety and pain that the black community feels daily and actionable steps that the sustainability community could take to advocate for diversity and stimulate unprecedented change.
I write to you again today with heavy grief and a set of earnest pleas:
As sustainability professionals, we must lead the cultivation of a more inclusive, equitable and safe world for all. We not only must steward the environment, but also explore ways to meet the needs of the vulnerable and create healthy platforms for people of all backgrounds to embrace commonalities, celebrate differences and heal tensions. If not us, then who?
