Spotlight on You

Stephen Ambrose was appointed chief climate scientist at SAIC, a new role at the company. In this role, Ambrose will lead SAIC’s climate program to provide government and industry customers solutions to address some of the most challenging problems facing society.

Ralph Izzo, chairman, president, and CEO of PSEG, recently published A new vision for net-zero, 20 years ahead of schedule on LinkedIn. “PSEG’s new 2030 climate vision is one of the first and most aggressive such targets set by a large utility and power generator—and represents a significant acceleration from our previous net-zero goals,” says Izzo. “What’s groundbreaking about PSEG’s 2030 goal is its focus not only on power generation, but on operations across the company, such as reduced emissions from equipment, buildings and vehicles, and curtailed methane leaks throughout our utility infrastructure.”

Meredith Moore, global diversity, equity and inclusion director at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, was named among the Top Diversity and Inclusion Officers by Crain’s New York Business. The publication highlighted the innovative and effective diversity initiatives she has helped launch, including Weil’s Taskforce on Women’s Engagement & Retention, the Upstander@Weil ally initiative, recent racial justice and antiracism efforts, and an annual mandatory diversity training requirement for all attorneys and staff, which is now in its tenth year.

Cindy Pace, vice-president and global chief diversity and inclusion officer at MetLife, was featured in Financial Times in the article Action trumps pledges in fight against workplace inequality. “In the past year, people focused on conversations: let’s talk about race, let’s talk about equity,” says Pace. “We have to address the systemic barriers in the culture that cause one group to have access to opportunities over others.”
