Please join us for the last DEI speaker of the Fall semester. Deeohn Ferris, JD, is Vice President for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at the National Audubon Society. Deeohn is an environmental lawyer whose career connects many fields of study and spans government, industry, the public interest and the civil rights sectors. She has extraordinary experience leading expert teams working on community regeneration and land revitalization with federal agencies, as well as governments, foundations, community coalitions, tribal organizations and indigenous peoples in the US and countries on five continents.

Combining local impact and countrywide reach, Deeohn is a nationally recognized provider of specialized know-how that tackles equity, sustainability, resiliency, and engagement of under-represented, often, racially stratified populations. She has overseen litigation and managed projects involving hundreds of community activists, faith-based leaders and elected officials, organizing working relationships, evaluating science and technical debates, and overcoming obstacles to collaboration and public participation. Deeohn is also an environmental justice pioneer. Her environmental and civil rights knowledge and policy expertise were instrumental to introducing and establishing the field of environmental justice, nationally and globally, to convening the first-ever Congressional hearings, and providing expert legal representation for communities before Congress, federal agencies, the United Nations, the media and the public.
Please join us in Dana 1040 on December 4 at 5pm.
