Research for a Sustainable Environmental Future


Our research has focused on making all sectors of the environmental movement accessible to members of underrepresented communities. Most recently, our research has focused on transparency; producing research reports on (1) diversity pathways for underrepresented minorities, (2) gender and race reporting for staff and boards, salary equity, and (3) funding disparities in environmental organizations. VSEF researchers also recently helped out on collaborative, multi-disciplinary study examining food insecurity from a diversity of perspectives throughout the state of Michigan’s food system.
