On this episode, I speak with author, speaker, consultant and friend, Nikki Pava. Nikki and I met through a mutual friend many years ago and worked together on EcoTuesday, which you will hear about in the interview. We talk about her career experiences, MBA and book, Green Wisdom: A Guide for Anyone to Start, Engage and Energize a Sustainability Team which profiles initiatives at a variety of companies. Nikki founded AlegriaPartners to help businesses engage employees around sustainability.
The central message I took away from my conversation with Nikki is that anyone who is motivated can help make a difference in their company. If you are passionate about conservation and the environment and that is not part of your job description, you can work together with others in your organization to start, run or expand sustainability activities.
