Third annual Planetary Health Guest Lectureship

April 26, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Kelsey Wirth, board chair and co-founder of Mothers Out Front, will deliver the third annual Planetary Health Guest LectureshipBuilding the Power We Need to Create a Better World for our Children. Wirth was inspired to start Mothers Out Front after becoming a mother and feeling despair about how climate change will impact her children’s lives. Struck by how few opportunities people had to meaningfully engage in addressing the problem, she set out to change this under the guidance of veteran organizer and social movement scholar Marshall Ganz.

Wirth is also co-founder and former president of Align Technology, Inc., maker of Invisalign. She has served on the boards of the Environmental Working Group and Grist Magazine, and currently serves as president the Winslow Foundation. A native of both Colorado and Washington, D.C., Wirth graduated from Harvard College and received her master’s degree in business administration from Stanford University.

The Planetary Health Guest Lectureship will be held April 26 at 11 a.m. in the Bentson Healthy Communities Innovation Center.
