“We live at a time of unparalleled opportunity and progress…

It’s the best time in the world’s history to be born female.

That said, the challenges ahead are so much more tricky and complicated and complex….”

Women are the Front Line of Solutions to Global Challenges, Especially Climate Change

Kathy Calvin came to the UN Foundation senior team in 2003 feeling insecure, like we all do taking on a new challenge, even though she had spent 20+ years in senior level roles at AOL, and U.S. News. “I thought, ‘I’m not qualified,'” and explained why. But she took the job anyway and has huge insights to share – from the global stage to climate change, to women’s issues, to leadership, and growing your career.

Listen to Electric Ladies Podcast/Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson’s fascinating conversation with Kathy about leadership, including:


“This is an era in which action and change, and all the things we’re trying to get done, does not start at the top like it used to. It starts everywhere else. It comes up from the bottom, it comes in from citizens, it comes in from corporations and other organizations.”
