Regenerative Agriculture and Sustainable Finance

September 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Learn how regenerative ag and sustainability finance can help ensure diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI)

About this event

The regenerative agriculture movement heavily borrows from land management practices carried out in Native American and Black agricultural communities. Despite this legacy, Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) are rarely included in conversations about regenerative agriculture and, historically, have disproportionately faced barriers to access farmland and financial services due to a combination of discrimination and inadequate outreach and assistance. In this session, experts will explore ways to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in American agriculture through sustainable finance, and to make the U.​S.​ food system more racially just and equitable.
