The CALS Dean’s Inclusive Excellence Seminar Series and the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment Present:
A conversation with Ms. Tamara Toles O'Laughlin, Co-chair of the Green Leadership Trust & Chairwoman of the Board of Directors of Women’s Voices for the Earth
Tamara Toles O’Laughlin is a national climate strategist and environmental advocate focused on people and planet. Her niche in environmental work is developing capacity building programs and creating multimedia campaigns to dismantle privilege and increase opportunities for vulnerable populations to access health air, clean energy, and a toxic free economy at the local, regional and national level.
Tamara has worked for two decades to embed the principles of environmental justice into environmental work, with attention to community capacity building, mobilization, equity in enforcement, and environmental health. Most recently, Tamara was the former North American Director at 350.org, where she drove regional strategy in the United States and Canada. As the leader of 350’s programming she led mission critical work and organizational investments to build a multiracial, multi-generational climate movement capable of holding leaders accountable to science and justice. She graduated from the Vermont Law School in 2009, with a Juris Doctor and Master of Environmental Law and Policy with a concentration in energy generation and carbon constraint.
