In the fourth episode of Land & Power, we speak with Forterra President and CEO Michelle Connor. Michelle is a white, third-generation Washingtonian. She explains why our organization is thinking about equity…or should be thinking about equity…100% of the time. We’ll also ask her why a land trust wanted to make a podcast in the first place.
Michelle Connor is the president and CEO of Forterra. She has worked on behalf of community and environmental well-being in Washington for the past 30 years.
About Land & Power: Stories of belonging
We’re interested in hearing from people of color doing groundbreaking and thoughtful work related to land. We’re asking them about how land connects to power and privilege, the concept and history of land ownership, and how land connects to our health and wellbeing.
