Student Roundtable: Working Toward the Just Transition: A Conversation with Thilmeeza Hussain

Past Event

February 16, 2023

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This roundtable is open only to currently-enrolled Columbia University students. 

Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs for a student-only lunch and roundtable discussion with Thilmeeza Hussain, Permanent Representative of the Maldives to the United Nations.

A just transition centers on moving to a greener economy in a way that is fair and inclusive of all humans. In order to build a career based on the principles of a just transition, we must be intentional and purposeful. Her Excellency Thilmeeza Hussain will discuss how she has managed to navigate her career utilizing the principles of the just transition. We will also discuss ways to apply the lessons Ms. Hussain has learned to students’ career paths.

The Center on Global Energy Policy’s Women in Energy (WIE) initiative envisions a world where there is equal gender representation at every level within the energy sector. Our mission is to elevate women and enhance inclusion within the energy workforce by developing and sharing research, expanding entry into the sector, and supporting professionals.

Lunch will be provided.
