The Future of Business Sustainability Blog Series

We’re excited to launch a new blog series this fall! The Future of Business Sustainability blog series is an opportunity for students to share their perspective and experience related to the issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in business sustainability. Potential themes for blog content are:

  • The Background: Discuss systemic inequalities and challenges of the environmental and business sustainability fields. What is broken and how can it be fixed?
  • An Immigration Story: Discuss how being an immigrant or child of immigrants aligns with or is at odds with what you’re studying today
  • The Dominant Narrative: Discuss what it means to be an ally in business sustainability, both at Michigan and in the workplace
  • Theories of Change: Discuss what companies are doing (or not doing) today to pursue diversity, equity and inclusion not only at the workplace but with regards to the products and services they deliver

We are also open to other ideas and perspectives! This opportunity is open to all Erb students. We will be selecting 3-4 submissions to move forward. Each student submitting a blog will work with the Erb Marketing and Communications team, as well as an outside editor, to create the best piece of content possible. Each student will also be able to work with our SAB VP of DEI, Kathy Tian to┬ádevelop ideas and reflect on experiences. If you’d like to share your story or perspective but don’t wish to have it published under your name, please let us know.
