“Gender equity and environmental sustainability may seem like unrelated issues, but research shows that they are in fact closely intertwined. Women and other underserved groups are disproportionately impacted by the global climate crisis, but they are also uniquely positioned to lead the fight for sustainability. Ultimately, to tackle climate change (as well as the myriad other sustainability challenges that face today’s organizations), leaders and individuals must acknowledge the complexity and interconnectedness of these issues — and work to develop integrated solutions that will improve them all. “– Harvard Business Review
