WorkingNation interviews leaders in sustainability at the GreenBiz 20 Conference in Arizona as part of our #WorkingNationOverheard campaign.

Her area of expertise is Corporate Sustainability, more specifically: sustainable business practices, sustainability-focused innovation and enterprise, and organizational culture. In this clip, Dr. Behravesh gives us an example of how changemakers don’t necessarily have to be entrepreneurs. They can create great change from within existing organizations at any level.
