This featured workshop on Browning the Green Space - Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) in Practice will provide participants an overview of the primary role that justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion play in advancing climate action within higher education. In this session, we will explore systems-based approaches to promoting JEDI objectives in pursuing energy efficiency, renewable energy, sustainable resource management, and more by examining how these approaches intersect with several key pillars - careers & companies, capital & contracts, and communities.
