Green 2.0 Announces Strategy to Further Drive Accountability and a Search for New Executive Director

Washington, D.C. — The Board of Directors for Green 2.0, an independent advocacy campaign to increase the racial diversity among environmental organizations, have announced the approval and execution of a new strategic vision for the organization, and the beginning of a search for a new Executive Director. Whitney Tome will be stepping down as Green 2.0 Executive Director once a successor has been named in order to expand her responsibilities at The Raben Group.

Robert Raben, Founder of Green 2.0, stated: “Green 2.0’s core mission remains the same: we have always strived to be a catalyst for transformation, to ensure that environmental solutions are shaped by the expertise of those most impacted and address systemic root causes of injustice. I am pleased by the Board’s decision to focus Green 2.0’s future work on further driving accountability and visibility—including the increased use of praise, criticism and exposure of individual NGOs, foundations, and government agencies in order to accomplish our strategic vision.”

Ignacia S. Moreno, Green 2.0 Board Member, said: “The entire Green 2.0 Board of Directors thanks Whitney Tome for an outstanding job in leading Green 2.0 for the last three years, and for her guidance in helping to shape our strategic vision. Green 2.0 will continue to strengthen its own infrastructure by investing in staff that are dedicated to the organization, expanding and strengthening the role of our board, and enhancing collaboration with key partners.”

Whitney Tome, current Green 2.0 Executive Director and Principal at The Raben Group, stated: “I have been proud to work with my Green 2.0 colleagues to further its core mission to increase racial diversity across mainstream environmental NGOs, foundations and government agencies. I thank the Board for trusting me with steering the ship, and I’m excited to pass the baton to a new Executive Director who will have the opportunity to write the next chapter for Green 2.0.”

The Board of Directors of Green 2.0 will be accepting applications for the position of Executive Director of Green 2.0 starting immediately. The Board seeks to hire and announce a new lead by the end of 2019. To apply, please send your cover letter, resume and writing sample at recruitment@rabengroup.com and indicate ‘Executive Director’ in the subject line.
