Social Equity and Sustainable Food

Due to a technical glitch, the recording of our webinar did not include the video of our speakers. We’ve repurposed the audio into a podcast format — since we opted to use webcams of our speakers instead of slides, you won’t miss out on any information.

Listen to the podcast to hear from Nikki Silvestri, Rut Martinez-Alicea of Oregon Food Bank, and Sarah Brown of Oregon Tilth as they discuss the process, discomfort, and benefits of integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) into everyday practices and programs. The presenters shared case studies of organizational experiences and lessons learned from their experiences working on DEI programs.


  • Nikki Silvestri, Principle and Founder, Soil and Shadow
  • Rut Martinez-Alicea, Director of Equity, People and Culture, Oregon Food Bank
  • Sarah Brown, Education Director, Oregon Tilth
