Join us for our monthly EcoReps workshop featuring locals making a difference in sustainability and a free vegetarian lunch!
We continue our fall series on last Fridays at noon with Rebecca Hollenbach, Executive Administrator at Louisville Metro's Center for Health Equity. The Center for Health Equity is dedicated to public service and participatory research that is community-based and focused on the elimination of disparities in health due to race, gender, age, socioeconomic status, or geography.
Rebecca has been working for Louisville residents as part of Louisville Metro Government since she moved here in 2016. In her time at the Center for Health Equity, she has led key projects such as the 2017 Health Equity Report and the community health needs assessment. She also helped transition the Center for Health Equity from 5 employees to 40, with a focus on root causes, data and policy. She currently coordinates policy and planning work for the COVID-19 response and is managing the 2021 Health Equity Report. Rebecca founded LouEval, a network of Louisville evaluators and is a graduate of Louisville Metro’s leadership program, Executive Fellows. Rebecca’s passion is working towards a Louisville where all residents can live long, healthy, and happy lives. This means addressing the ways systems of power, like racism, impact our society and creating solutions that will move us closer to equity.
The Sustainability Council’s EcoReps program is designed to move students, faculty & staff beyond talk to action for a more sustainable UofL! We provide basic training & resources, service opportunities, and leadership positions as a point-person & peer-to-peer advocate for sustainability. More info on EcoReps website. This fall, we continue our series of workshops each month on last Fridays at noon. All are welcome.
