Nellis Kennedy-Howard is the Director for the Equity, Inclusion and Justice department at the Sierra Club and has an extensive background in law, natural resources and environmental justice issues, professionally and personally. The main goal for this sector is to manage the organization’s activities and its transformation into an anti-oppressive entity, while continuing to work with environmental and participation and community engagement’s issues. Three other women compose this department, namely Jessica Ronald, Cait Lull and Allison Chin. Resources are scarce and limited manpower list among some of the practical challenges Nellis and her team face. Photo credit: Sierra Club
