Biodiversity, Spirit, and Society

Recorded on June 2, 2023

Have you ever wondered how spirituality, the environment, and people are interconnected? In this fascinating webinar, Nikki Silvestri explored the practical and spiritual aspects of the relationships between humanity, society, and the planet.

Central to her premise, she focused on this question in her presentation: What can managing ecosystems for biodiversity teach us about managing human systems for social diversity and high performance?

If you want to learn more about how Nikki interprets the ties between land, people, and the power of the human spirit, enjoy this replay full of insight and discussion. You’ll also discover how acknowledging this bigger, interconnected picture provides an opportunity for holistically addressing the root problems of many societal issues.


Nikki Silvestri’s unique approach to inclusion, leadership, and organizational development takes cues from nature, building models of “social fertility” to weave them into a Joy and Impact™ framework. Her work also encourages a rigorous and shame-free approach to acknowledging our societal shadows and blind spots, especially when attempting to balance the triple bottom line (ecology, economy, and equity) in times of uncertainty, climate/health feedback loops, and increasing volatility.

Nikki’s wide-ranging career has taken her from presentations at the White House and negotiations with the Environmental Protection Agency to intimate workshops with local businesses and small retail organizing. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including ELLE Magazine’s Gold Award and OxFam America’s Act Local, Think Global Award, and she was named one of The Root’s 100 Most Influential African Americans. You can see her full bio and website here.
