Climate change and equity go together, they are inseparable, and it is important to infuse those interconnections into our conversations, decision-making, and just solutions for the climate crisis. Erica has dedicated her career to addressing the intersections of climate change and social justice, and often in unexpected ways, through her role as an architect leading sustainable design and retrofitting existing buildings, and as a professor and researcher at Carnegie Mellon University. Through her groundbreaking and interdisciplinary work on equity, Erica is spreading the message that what architects and engineers do matter for closing the gaps on racial and economic inequities that exist in our built environment because it will result in more climate justice for all of us.
