After an extensive national search in partnership with The 360 Group, most of which took place during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are very excited to welcome Deeohn Ferris to the helm of Institute for Sustainable Communities. Deeohn has dedicated her career to advancing sustainability, equitable economic development and environmental justice, and embedding and scaling equity, diversity and inclusion practices in organizations. Deeohn brings critical skills to ISC from decades of experience as an environmental lawyer, community builder and economic justice practitioner in climate justice and racial justice. Never have these skills and experiences been more important than at this pivotal moment in history. Read the full announcement here.
