High Impact Tea featuring Mary Nichols, Distinguished Counsel at UCLA Law, Former Chairwoman of the California Air Resources Board, in conversation with Dr. Magali Delmas, Professor of Management at the Anderson School of Management and the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability
With COP26 underway and almost to its conclusion, we wanted to feature Dr. Mary Nichols, whose work spans the gamut of environmental law and policy. Her long tenure working in this field through four gubernatorial administrations in California has made her a model of conversation, collaboration, and outcomes, managing to balance the interests of utilities companies, communities, activists, policy-makers, financiers, and the auto, oil and gas industries without getting co-opted. This High Impact Tea will explore what will come next in environmental regulations, how young graduates can have an environmental impact, and how each of us can influence corporations to be truly green. Dr. Nichols will be in conversation with Maggie Delmas, Professor of Management at the Anderson School of Management and the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability at UCLA and Faculty Director of the Center for Impact at Anderson.
The High Impact Tea is a quarterly speaker series that features social impact industry leaders sharing stories about their successes, and lessons learned in their careers. The social and educational event is open to faculty, students, staff and alumni across UCLA, as well as the broader social impact community. It is designed to provide a forum for conversation and exchange of ideas among people committed to creating social, environmental and economic impact around the world.
