The Emerging Leaders Program aims to elevate, cultivate and support the next generation of Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) leaders in the climate community.

The Emerging Leaders Program’s goal is to foster a community of sustainability professionals that is diverse and representative of the world in which we live. It does so by fostering pathways into the sustainability space for students and early-career professionals who face barriers to entry in the field.

GreenBiz is an essential event for all sustainability professionals and those aspiring to join the field... Community learning is at the center of this event and it was life-changing to take part as an Emerging Leader and learn from the best in the business of sustainability.

Participating in GreenBiz as a BIPOC Emerging Leader has solidified my desire to address the climate crisis through business. Not only did I learn from thought leaders in the sustainable business space, but I formed lifelong connections with passionate individuals from all walks of life eager to tackle the climate emergency.
