Wendy Abrams is the founder of Cool Globes, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness of climate change.

In this talk, Wendy Abrams will share how her concern of climate change affecting her children's future kick-started her journey from career businesswoman to environmental advocate, a journey on which U-M students can model their own paths as they combine their academic knowledge, networking skills, and passion for the environment to bring about change. She will discuss the challenges she overcame in establishing her non-profit organization and raising awareness, and what happened when business leaders, policy makers, and even Presidential candidates took notice of her success.
