Dr. Rae André will facilitate a virtual faculty-development session on "Teaching Climate Leadership." The workshop will equip instructors to promote integrative learning in courses on strong sustainability.

Dr. Rae André is the author of Lead for the Planet: Five Practices for Confronting Climate Change. Lead for the Planet shifts the focus to how we, the members of Team Humanity, are going to organize to solve the twin issues of climate change and energy evolution. The book channels a broad range of social science perspectives, from anthropology to psychology to economics, to help decision-makers explore how Team Humanity can get this thing done.

An organizational psychologist, André is professor emeritus of leadership and sustainability and instructor in the D'Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University in Boston. Her courses promote systemic thinking on climate change and energy evolution. Aimed at high level undergraduates, MBAs, and professionals, they include sustainability for organizations ("weak" sustainability) along with sustainability for the planet ("strong" sustainability). Her work has reached students in a variety of disciplines from management to engineering to liberal arts. André received a Ph.D. in organizational psychology from the University of Michigan, an M.A. in film studies from the University of California at Los Angeles, and a B.A. (cum laude) in English from Cornell University.
