Join us for a fireside chat with Catherine Coleman Flowers, Founder, Center for Rural Enterprise and Environmental Justice and Dr. Anthony Kinslow, Stanford Lecturer in Civil and Environmental Engineering. Catherine is this year's Conradin von Gugelberg Memorial speaker and the keynote speaker for the GSB's Climate, Business & Innovation Summit.
Catherine is an internationally recognized environmental activist, MacArthur “genius” grant recipient, and author. She has spent her career advocating for equal access to clean water, air, sanitation, and soil in marginalized rural communities in order to reduce health and economic disparities in marginalized rural communities.
In addition, she serves as Rural Development Manager for the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), is a Senior Fellow for the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary, and sits on the Board of Directors for the Climate Reality Project and the Natural Resources Defense Council. Catherine uses her lens of leadership in environmental justice and climate change advocacy to inspire attendees with her innovation and experience.
