Agents of Change: 2022-2023 Cohort
Read the ideas and solutions from our fourth cohort.
The Agents of Change in Environmental Justice program, a partnership between Environmental Health News and Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, is excited to bring you essays from our fourth cohort.
The mission of our program, which began in 2019, is to empower emerging leaders from historically excluded backgrounds in science and academia to reimagine solutions for a just and healthy planet. The program, founded by Dr. Ami Zota of Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, began with a small group of eight fellows and has grown into one of the premiere national fellowships focused on increasing science communication and public engagement among early career scientists from marginalized backgrounds.
Our fellows have published 40 original essays in EHN, which are freely available in English and Spanish. We also started a popular podcast where we dive into the career paths and big ideas from fellows and other leaders in the field.
