Agents of Change: 2024 Cohort

Read the ideas and solutions from our fifth cohort.

The Agents of Change in Environmental Justice program, a partnership between EHN and Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, is excited to bring you essays from our fifth 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 more than 50 essays, which are 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. You can see full details about the program at its homepage.

Read the essays below from our current and past fellows.
