    We are thrilled to announce that our topic for this forum is plastics.

    She will be joined by:

    • Becca Fong, Seattle Public Utilities

She previously worked on climate policy with the US Agency for International Development and as a consultant for local governments, and has a Master’s degree in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School.
