Join inaugural Green Leadership Trust ED Paco Ollervides for this webinar which is designed to assist leaders and organizations in their commitment to diversity, equity, inclusivity, and justice, to explore what culture change is and help them make everyday decisions about programs and activities. Paco will discuss ‘the why’ of diversity considerations for organizations; suggest a few mechanisms for how to ensure diversity, equity, inclusion and justice; and chart possible next steps as we embark in a journey to continue building the DEIJ culture of these organizations.
