Environmental Nonprofit, MobilizeGreen, Presents its 2017 Conference and Diversity Career Fair

This Special Event Will Promote Environmental Equity and Prepare Diverse, Future Green Leaders for Careers in Environmental, Science, Engineering, and Technology

SAN FRANCISCO - Jan. 10, 2017 - Rezul -- Washington, DC-based environmental nonprofit, MobilizeGreen, is proud to announce its 2017 Annual Conference and Diversity Career Fair. The theme and focus of this year's conference is Environmental Equity: Investing In Diverse Leadership.

Government agencies, nonprofits and businesses face the ongoing challenge of identifying, recruiting and engaging the next generation of diverse leaders who can help rebuild our economy and the environment. The goals of the three-day conference and career fair, curated by MobilizeGreen, are to inspire, engage, and mobilize a new generation of green leaders, and promote environmental equity by helping to change the ways employers and diverse groups of young people connect and explore green career opportunities.

"Our theory of change is simple," says Leah Allen, founder and executive director of MobilizeGreen. "If we want to build our society on a greener more just foundation, young people who reflect America's rich demographic mix must be at the table helping to shape sustainability and environmental decisions in government and the private sector."
