Amplifying Black Voices for a Sustainable Economic Future
10-29-2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Provided by University of Pittsburgh Center for Sustainable Business
This moderated panel of local Black business-owners and sustainability professionals will discuss (1) the linkages (or lack thereof) between racial justice and sustainability strategy in business settings; (2) what it means to identify as a sustainability professional, why some people choose not to, and how that affects access to professional networks and opportunities; (3) why the “social” element of the equity dimensions of corporate sustainability and CSR frameworks must be grounded in community; (4) the importance of the language used to talk about sustainability and economic development; and (5) how policymaking (within companies and within communities) can move us towards a more equitable and sustainable economic future.
