The climate crisis can arguably be called a simple leadership crisis. And when it comes to leadership, we are mostly talking about White men.
The All We Can Save Project convincingly points out that our global climate crisis needs new leadership and that the obvious solution is to turn to women to lead us out of this mess.
“The science is clear: to have any hope of a livable future, we must rapidly, radically reshape society this decade.¹ We know the problems. We have the solutions. And yet, far too many leaders, across sectors, continue to focus on short-term profit and prestige. Society at large remains stuck in lukewarm concern and insufficient action, and too many people who care are still standing on the sidelines. The status quo is not working.
To date, conventional climate leadership has centered the voices and ideas of White* men, an imbalance that falls short in both fairness and efficacy.² A preference for facts without feelings, “solutions” without justice, and competition rather than collaboration continues to hold us back from building the biggest, strongest team possible.
The good news: Many of today’s most compelling climate leaders, across generations, are women—especially Black, Indigenous, and other women of color. Despite burdens, systemic barriers, and burnout, women are already leading boldly and effectively and throwing open doors to welcome people into climate work. A powerful, transformational climate-feminist ecosystem is emerging.”
