Video Title:
The Future is Here: Women in Environmental Leadership (WEL) Series
Known for their forward-thinking ideas, these female panelists will gave us a glimpse into the future of environmental justice. Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum started women’s history month with an exploration of women’s leadership roles in the seminal First National People of Color Environmental Leadership Summit held thirty years ago in Washington, DC and the impacts of such participation on subsequent justice efforts. We end our celebration of a month of women’s environmental leadership with an exploration of the future, the women who are shaping and will continue to shape and lead environmental spaces at local, national, and international levels. The panel explores the perspectives they bring into these multiple spaces, the definitions they will challenge and expand, and the shape of the communities they will help to build. In celebration of Women’s History Month, ACM’s Urban Waterways project hosted four virtual community forums as part of its Women’s Environmental Leadership (WEL) initiative. Moderator: Tamara Toles O’Laughlin, International Environmental Advocate & Strategist Panelists: Erika Dickerson-Despenza, Playwright Cultural Worker, Tow Playwright-in-Residence, The Public Theater Sekita Grant, Vice President, Programs, The Solutions Project Corina Newsome, Community Engagement Manager, Georgia Audubon
