About this event

Cities@Tufts is a cross-disciplinary academic initiative that recognizes Tufts as a leader in urban studies, planning, and sustainability. Join us as we welcome scholars and create spaces for innovative discussions on complex urban and environmental issues.

Jennie C. Stephens is the Dean’s Professor of Sustainability Science & Policy at Northeastern’s School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs. She is an internationally recognized expert on renewable energy transformation, energy justice, climate justice, energy democracy, and gender and race in energy and climate.

Her most recent book, Diversifying Power: Why We Need Antiracist, Feminist Leadership (Island Press, 2020), inspires collective action by elevating the stories of innovative diverse leaders who are linking climate and energy with jobs and economic justice, health, and food, transportation, and housing. She argues that the key to effectively addressing the climate crisis by mobilizing transformative change is to diversify leadership, redistribute wealth and power, and move beyond technocratic solutions so that feminist, antiracist priorities are at the core of all policy.

Following the lecture, there will be a Q&A moderated by Julian Agyeman.

This event is part of the Cities@Tufts Virtual Colloquium, an ongoing open lecture series from the Tufts school of Urban and Environmental Planning and Shareable.
