Marcelo Bonta
A father, husband, and soccer player, Marcelo is a team player both on and off the pitch. Marcelo has been doing "the work" of transforming the environmental industry or movement for quiet a while now.
He was part of the Green 2.0 work group which analyzed hundreds of environmental organizations across the United States.
The report, “The State of Diversity in Environmental Organizations: Mainstream NGOs, Foundations & Government Agencies,” is the most comprehensive report on diversity in the environmental movement. It surveyed 191 environmental non-profits, 74 government environmental agencies, and 28 leading environmental grant making foundations to investigate their gender and racial diversity composition, the majority of which state diversification as a “value.” The study included confidential interviews of 21 environmental leaders from diverse backgrounds and experience.
In this episode Marcelo and I discuss the environmental industry and movement. How language is used in the space, particularly what DEI or JEDI is? Listen in as we discuss what young professionals should do as they start their careers in the industry, and still want to be the environmental justice agents doing the work within.
