DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mary Kay Inc., a global advocate for corporate sustainability and stewardship, has long been on the frontlines of the fight to protect our oceans. Recently, representatives from the brand participated in Making Waves: Women Leaders in Ocean Conservation, a virtual panel hosted by The Nature Conservancy, the global environmental nonprofit whose goal is to create a world where people and nature can thrive.
During the event, panelists discussed how women leaders from across the globe are spearheading efforts to restore the health of our oceans—but more must be done. Other key themes included the empowerment, education, and motivation of the next generation along with the importance of local leadership.
Other panelists joining Mary Kay included:
- Dr. Lizzie Mcleod, Global Reefs Lead, The Nature Conservancy
- Dr. Sherry Constantine, Director of the Eastern Caribbean Program, The Nature Conservancy
- Robyn James, Gender and Equity Advisor in Asia Pacific, The Nature Conservancy
- Selina N. Leem, Climate warrior and poet from the Marshall Islands
- Jennifer Morris, CEO, The Nature Conservancy
“Elevating and supporting ocean and climate champions globally is an essential way we tackle the dual biodiversity and climate crisis," said Dr. Lizzie Mcleod, The Nature Conservancy’s Global Reef Lead. “Additionally, increasing women’s ability to participate in and lead ocean conservation and climate action ensures projects better address the needs of communities, are more sustainable and more equitable, and create a win-win for people and nature.”
Mary Kay understands any threat to the health of our oceans is an existential threat to us all and we are committed to working with other leaders in this space to make a difference.
