Innovating our way to environmental justice? Tensions and paradoxes in our efforts to combat climate change: an Evening with Khalid Kadir

Khalid Kadir is a Professor and Program Director at Presidio Graduate School, teaching Economy and Society at both the San Francisco and Seattle campuses. Khalid's teaching and program development takes an inter-sectoral approach to understanding sustainability and social justice problems facing the world today. His work on curriculum design at Presidio Graduate School builds on his experience creating an innovative interdisciplinary engineering course at UC Berkeley that trains future engineers to engage with the social and political roots of their technical work. In recognition of this work, Khalid was awarded the 2014 Chancellor’s Award for Public Service for Service-Learning Leadership. In addition to his teaching, Khalid has consulted with various non-profit organizations on environmental sustainability, water, sanitation, and poverty, with an eye towards addressing the needs of marginalized communities.
