The field of environmental law has seen many changes over the years, with demonstrable legal and policy victories for cleaner air and water. While the face of the environmental movement in its beginnings was predominantly male, women have become more prominent and influential within environmental law and policy over the decades. On July 26, 2022, the Environmental Law Institute’s Women in Environmental Law and Leadership Initiative hosted a cross-generational panel of women who explored opportunities and challenges for women in environmental law and policy “then and now,” and offered advice for the next generation of lawyers and policymakers breaking into the field. This Dialogue presents a transcript of that discussion, which has been edited for style, clarity, and space considerations.

Jordan Diamond is the President of the Environmental Law Institute. Tanya Nesbitt (moderator) is a Partner with Marten Law. Pamela Giblin is Senior Policy Advisor with the Climate Leadership Council. Ignacia S. Moreno is the Chief Executive Officer and a founding Principal of The iMoreno Group, PLC, and a former Assistant Attorney General of the Environment and Natural Resources Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (2009-2013). Marisa Blackshire is the Senior Director of Environmental Compliance and Health & Safety at Bloom Energy. Shannon Morrissey is Counsel with WilmerHale.
