Transgender-rights advocate Precious Brady-Davis is leaving Columbia College after three years to work for the environmental agency Sierra Club.
In a Facebook post, Brady-Davis stated, "For the past 3 years it has been a joy serving as the Assistant Director of Diversity Recruitment Initiatives at my alma mater Columbia College Chicago.
"Under my tenure I provided leadership to the campus-wide diversity initiative through creation and implementation of cultural competency and social justice trainings, service on the President's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, oversight of national diversity recruitment and [various] strategic policy initiatives."
She will now work as the deputy press secretary for the Beyond Coal Campaign at Sierra Club.

Precious' experience as a communicator, advocate and organizer focused on equity and justice will be extremely valuable to engage more people in the work to protect our air, land and water now and for future generations."
