The Office of Sustainability and the Women’s Center are thrilled to bring an inspiring voice to our campus this spring—Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson. Dr. Johnson is a leading voice in the climate conversation and co-editor of the new anthology All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis, a powerful collection of writings by women spanning backgrounds, approaches, and generations at the forefront of the climate movement.
There is a renaissance blooming in the climate movement: leadership that is more characteristically feminine and more faithfully feminist, rooted in compassion, connection, creativity, and collaboration. While it’s clear that women and girls are vital voices and agents of change for this planet, they are too often missing from the proverbial “table.” More than a problem of bias, it’s a dynamic that sets us up for failure. To change everything, we need everyone.
Feed your inspiration for action by joining us for a virtual conversation with Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, marine biologist, policy expert, and leader/cultivator of the climate movement. The conversation will be moderated by Dr. Rowie Kirby-Straker, Assistant Teaching Professor, WFU Department of Communications. See below for more information about our speakers.
Target Audience: Faculty, Students, Staff, Alums, Community
