SAPAAC Speaker Series 2021: Kick-off Panel
Climate change, clean energy and sustainable development represent some of the most pressing issues our planet faces today—and Asian American professionals are springing to action. Whether in government agencies, the nonprofit sector, or private companies, some of the most creative and passionate voices in this field belong to Stanford alumni.
Join us for a discussion on how to put your Stanford education to work for the environment; the challenges we overcome as Asian American professionals; and how to build and lead interdisciplinary teams that implement sustainability solutions in the United States and abroad. The panel will also discuss actions students and alumni can adopt in their own lives to accelerate the greening of our energy system, make our cities more livable, and keep Earth habitable.
