How are you involved in CSR?

In 2006, I launched the corporate sustainability program for Stantec, a global design and consulting firm. During my 6 years with the company, I developed and implemented a variety of initiatives to make operational policies, procedures, and practices more environmentally and socially responsible. I have acted as a sustainability expert in various capacities, including guest lecturing for several classes on sustainable business, as well as authoring a discussion paper for the City of Edmonton’s The Way We Green environmental strategic plan. I am a LEED® accredited professional and a LEAD Fellow. I am also actively involved in my community and am the co-founder and former vice chapter leader of the Net Impact Edmonton Professional Chapter. I am currently pursuing a Masters of Environmental Management with a focus on business at Yale University.

Do you have any ideas for our CSR book club topics?

Tons! I have a CSR booklist, but it's 7 pages long. I can e-mail it to you.

What are you seeking from this group?

To connect with others interested in CSR in the NYC area so we can share our experiences and learn from each other.

Introduction

I am a sustainability professional with 6 years of experience implementing CSR initiatives from the ground up in a global corporation. I am passionate about CSR issues and eager to meet others with whom I can share experiences and learn from.
