A Conversation with Gina McCarthy: Just and Sustainable Climate Solutions
Join us for an engaging conversation with Gina McCarthy, the country’s first National Climate Advisor. As the president's chief advisor on domestic climate policy, McCarthy leads the White House Office of Domestic Climate Policy focused on mobilizing a whole-of-government approach to tackling the climate crisis, creating good-paying, union jobs, and securing environmental justice. Having served as the 13th Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency and then as President and CEO of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), McCarthy is one of the nation’s most trusted and accomplished voices on climate issues—and has been at the forefront of environmental and public health progress in a variety of leading roles for over three decades.
