Centering Climate Action in Climate Justice – Insights from The Climate Justice Playbook for Business

About this event
The Insights for Action seminar series explores how researchers and practitioners within and beyond Oxford are using research insights for action. Join us to hear conversations between researchers and practitioners who are working across disciplines, sectors, and media to understand and create more equitable and just social, economic, environmental, and health systems.

In this seminar, Dr Jessica Omukuti and Raj Aggarwal draw on insights from The Climate Justice Playbook for Business: How to centre climate action in Climate Justice (2021) and Oxford Net Zero to discuss the systems work needed to build an equitable and climate just world.

Speaker bios:

Raj Aggarwal is the founder of Provoc, a communications firm whose vision is a world transformed by equity, beauty, and love. With over twenty years of experience as a communications and technology strategist, he has led internal and external branding, marketing, and customer engagement efforts for more than 450 nonprofits and social impact firms. Raj actively helps to shift organizations into a space of compassion and equity. Raj keeps Provoc rooted in empathy-driven work by forging partnerships with values-aligned, visionary leaders committed to social, economic, and racial justice. He has led workshops and talks at dozens of national conferences, and continues to play a pivotal role in leading movements, communities, and organizations to be more equitable, inclusive, and aware of personal biases and prejudices.

As a lifelong Washingtonian, Raj is deeply rooted in the local community. He serves on the boards of the DC Fiscal Policy Institute, Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network, Washington DC Economic Partnership, and the Ben’s Chili Bowl Foundation. He is also the proud recipient of B Lab’s inaugural Anti-Racism and JEDI Impact Award. You can learn more about Raj’s personal story on NPR, and more on his professional work at Provoc.me.
