Are you worried about the climate crisis and don’t know where to begin to take action? A good place to start is your workplace. Companies wield enormous influence and they have an important role to play in reducing emissions and advocating for climate policy. When employees speak, companies act!

According to Kite Insights, 8 out of 10 employees say they are ready and willing to take action on climate change in their jobs, but fewer than half feel “very” or “quite able” to do so. Join ClimateVoice for a dynamic conversation about how employees can speak up to raise the bar on corporate climate advocacy.

Deborah McNamara is the Co-Executive Director of ClimateVoice, having worked for social change, environmental, and climate justice-focused nonprofits for over 20 years. Her most recent work includes leading climate-focused campaigns targeting fossil fuel finance, promoting climate solutions and a just transition away from fossil fuels, and enacting strong local climate policy. She also brings 12+ years of experience implementing cross-sector sustainability education and engagement programs, including in the corporate sustainability and employee engagement sphere. She studied Environmental Policy and Philosophy at Boston University and received a Master’s degree in Environmental Leadership from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado.

Jennifer Allyn leads campaigns for ClimateVoice to mobilize companies to lobby for bold and equitable climate policy. In 2023, she earned a Master’s degree from Columbia University’s new climate school with a focus on climatology, public policy, and environmental justice. Jennifer started her career leading diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives, most recently as a Managing Director at PwC.
