Equity and Inclusion Resources

A significant part of our work at KAEE centers around cultivating collective impact and bringing people together to create a stronger and more inclusive movement. With this in mind, and looking to our fellow NAAEE Affiliate friends for best practices in information dissemination, we share here a collection of equity and inclusion resources—from articles to videos to recommended books to podcasts to experts—with our members, donors, and the wider community.

​Like our work in advancing environmental knowledge around the state, this is work that is ever-changing and growing. We would love to hear from you as we build this collection of resources; please let us know if you have suggested readings, videos, podcasts, and more to add to these pages.

The Southeastern Environmental Education Alliance is partnering with the following southeast states to provide a regional course on Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for environmental educators: Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, South Carolina, and Tennessee. If you are a resident of North Carolina or Georgia, you can take the course in your state. 

​This course is designed to provide a strong foundation in the language, concepts and principles of equity work. It is meant to be an introductory course and spark interest in further learning around justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. This course was developed through a partnership between the Center for Diversity and the Environment, EcoInclusive, Environmental Educators of North Carolina, Kansas Association for Conservation and Environmental Education, Kentucky Association for Environmental Education, and Youth Outside.

This is a hybrid course. Participants will complete course work on their own time but will be asked to attend virtual check-in calls via Zoom every couple of weeks. Call times are listed in the syllabus.
