Join us for an exciting Public Address to the Yale community by one of the leading figures in the environmental movement in the United States, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) President Frances Beinecke. After graduating as a member of Yale College's first class of women and then from the Forestry school, Ms. Beinecke joined the NRDC. The newly-formed environmental group was founded in 1970 by graduates of Yale Law School. Ms. Beinecke has spent her entire career at the NRDC, and she took over as only the second president of the Council in January 2006. Today the NRDC is widely thought to be the nations most influential and effective environmental organization, with approximately 650,000 members and 300 employees dedicated to working on critical issues concerning energy, pollution, land-use, and resource-conservation. This Address is brought to you by the Curran Distinguished Mentor Program, a Dwight Hall program that aims to provide students with access to role models who have demonstrated life-long commitments to promoting the public good of the nation. Ms. Beinecke will be introduced by Bruce Alexander, Yale Vice President for New Haven & State Affairs and Campus Development. There will be time for questions and answers. This event is free of charge and open to the public. It will be followed by a FREE catered reception with Ms. Beinecke for undergraduates only in the Dwight Hall Library, sponsored by Silliman College.
