Organic organizations have recognized the need for training providing baseline knowledge and common language around issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion across the organic community.

This presentation, delivered by Beth Schermerhorn and Asha Carter from Cambium Collective with the input of the steering committee and focus groups, will provide an overview of systemic racism in organic agriculture systems, data on current demographics surrounding organic farmers, consumers, and service providers, and existing policies contributing to or remediating discrepancies.
