Today, white men make up less than 30 percent of the US population, yet hold over 60% of elected positions, control a disproportionate share of the nation’s wealth, and have resisted the creation of green jobs in an economic sector they have long controlled.

In "Diversifying Power: Why We Need Antiracist, Feminist Leadership on Climate and Energy," Jennie Stephens argues that leadership reflects the experiences and priorities of its members, and that women and communities of color have for too long been underrepresented and over-impacted. In this context, antiracist, feminist leadership is not a luxury - it is central to giving voice and agency to almost three-quarters of our population, with potentially Earth-changing results.

Jennie C. Stephens, PhD, is the Director of the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs and the Dean’s Professor of Sustainability Science & Policy at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.
