In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic, a reckoning with racism, and the enduring battle against climate change have starkly revealed the need for systemic change. Equity has proven to be a critical component of how leadership should be guided toward justice. As the environmental education field continues its efforts to become more inclusive, we’re honored to learn from leaders like CAELI member Candice Dickens-Russell—the justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion manager at DoGoodery, a social impact agency helping organizations make positive change. In this Q&A, Candice shares how her work advocating for equitable practices inspires her vision for the future.
