Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Workshop Series Pt. 1: Unconscious Bias, Systemic Oppression, and Power Dynamics >> WATCH HERE

Join PeopleForBikes as we launch a new, three-part webinar series sharing foundational knowledge and best practices for building an equitable bike industry. Biking has the potential to truly be an activity for everyone, but we need to work harder to make that a reality. To fight systemic exclusion within the bicycle industry, we need to start with ourselves and our workplaces. In our first installment, Aparna Rajagopal from the Avarna Group will illustrate how unconscious bias manifests in our assumptions, interpersonal interactions and even feeds into systems of oppression that affect the entire bike industry and community. Lindsay Knight from Specialized will also share how we can use this knowledge to change power structures in our organizations to elevate marginalized voices. There will be time for small group discussion and questions for our speakers.

Electric Bicycle Battery Recycling Program >> WATCH HERE

Join PeopleForBikes and Call2Recycle to learn more about the bicycle industry’s groundbreaking electric bicycle battery recycling program. The program is administered by Call2Recycle, the country’s premier battery collection, logistics and recycling experts, and endorsed by PeopleForBikes. 

While the program is voluntary, states across the country are exploring legislation to mandate battery recycling programs. For example, California’s HB 2440 is currently moving through the state legislature and would require the collection and recycling of electric bicycle batteries while allowing residents to turn in batteries for free.  

During the webinar, experts from Call2Recycle will share how the program may adapt as regulations evolve and suppliers and retailers will learn how the program can help them safely and responsibly charge, store and collect lithium ion batteries.
