DIVERSE
VOICES ON SUSTAINABILITY

Inclusion and diversity issues and practices need to be an integral part of the sustainability debate, because marginalized voices aren’t being heard right now.

We won’t solve the world’s climate and sustainability problems by leaving them to predominantly white, middle-aged, straight, male leaders.

Yet, as of mid-2019, the UN recorded here are just 23 female world leaders currently serving as Head of State or Head of Government.
Also, to date, there have been only five openly LGBTQ+ people who have served as a national head of government.

Jane Griffith of Odgers Berndtson makes the argument for hearing those silenced voices.
