Antiracist, Feminist Leadership on
Climate and Energy

Jennie C. Stephens

  • Director and Professor, School of Public Policy & Urban Affairs, Northeastern University

In additon to her other roles at Northeastern University, Jennie Stephens directs strategic research collaborations at the University's Global Resilience Institute.

In her new book, Diversifying Power: Why We Need Antiracist, Feminist Leadership on Climate and Energy, Stephens argues that the key to addressing the climate crisis is diversifying leadership so that antiracist, feminist priorities are central. All politics is now climate politics, so all policies -- from housing to health -- now have to integrate climate resilience and renewable energy.

Join us to hear inspirational stories of leaders who are leveraging the power of collective action to create structural, transformative change.

Moderated by Kris Mayes, director of ASU's Utility of the Future Center. This event is in partnership with Island Press, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that shines a spotlight on crucial issues and focuses attention on sustainable solutions.

Purchase the book from the locally owned Changing Hands Bookstore.
