Presenters

 

Regina Hauser: Board member The Natural Step International

A Pacific Northwest native, Regina believes that life is an adventure that shouldn’t be missed.  This goes a long way to explain her decision to leave the comfortable life of a partner at the regional law firm of Schwabe Williamson and Wyatt to take the helm of The Natural Step Network, a non-profit whose mission is to accelerate change toward sustainability. Regina now acts as executive ambassador for TNS and sits on the board of TNS International.

Maura Dilley: Director of Design and Research, WDHB

In this role, Maura designs the theme, flow and congruency of the group learning expedition. Prior to WDHB, Maura consulted on organizational learning and collaboration in the mutually evolving fields of social and environmental sustainability. Here, she brought cutting-edge pedagogy, such as action-learning, games-for-learning and collaborative inquiry, to business education and network knowledge-share. Maura is a systems thinker and toolmaker; she is an expert in The Natural Step Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development and a trained Open Space (un-Conference) facilitator.

For any inquiries please contact Nicole Bassett Director of Education and Communications for FTSLA.

In Partnership with The Natural Step USA & Provender Alliance
