May in Philadelphia over 350 Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) gathered for the third PGM ONE Summit. Over three days, participants were immersed in workshops, field trips, and in community that celebrated, reflected and supported them.
Over the years, PGM ONE has emerged as the largest annual gathering for BIPOC working in the outdoor and environmental fields. Their goal is to continually make the greater outdoor and environmental sectors, empowering, responsive, and reflective spaces for people of color and others with marginalized identities.
Due to the significance of this event, Green Leadership Trust sponsored the Summit at the advocate level and sent two members to represent us, Pallavi Phartiyal and Tamara Toles O’Laughlin. Pallavi and Tamara shared our work and built further connections with BIPOC’s in the environmental space.
