Sustainable Eastern Ontario launched a BIPOC fellowship program to bring in, support and encourage BIPOC leadership in the non-profit environmental sector.
The fellowship has 3 goals: (1) To Engage (2) To Connect (3) To Support BIPOC people in the sustainability sector through a series of workshops, events and the sharing of resources and tools. The goal of this Fellowship is to diversify and strengthen the environmental non-profit sector in Eastern Ontario. As such, it is available to individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, and who wish to transition into a leadership role in the environmental non-profit sector.
Youth & Diversity Collective
The Youth and Diversity Collective is dedicated to amplifying Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour youth voices by initiating conversations on sustainability and environmentalism in Ottawa. Through our “Greenlight Features”, we highlight these BIPOC stories on how youth are approaching and incorporating sustainability in their everyday lives. Each participant will be provided with an honorarium for their time and energy for this program.
