Join us for a conversation with California Air Resources Board Chair Mary Nichols @MaryNicholsCA on the recent U.N. Climate Change Conference in Paris, where she and Governor Brown represented California and helped to craft a new global pact with other world leaders to address one of the most urgent issues of our time.

After her opening remarks, Nichols will be interviewed by Michele Prichard, Liberty Hill Foundation's Director, Common Agenda.

This candid conversation will cover current environmental issues such as the State’s Cap and Trade Program, Clean Air and Community Health, and recent actions at South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD).

Additionally, Nichols will share her thoughts on how philanthropy can leverage multi-sector partnerships to advance environmental goals while serving under-resourced communities.

Before joining the Air Resources Board, Nichols was Assistant Administrator for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Air and Radiation program under President Clinton as well as Secretary for California’s Resources Agency. 

Nichols also served as Executive Director of Environment Now, a local foundation dedicated to protecting and restoring California’s environment.
