COMPASS Board Welcomes Justin Kenney
COMPASS’s mission is to champion, connect, and support diverse science leaders for the well-being of people and nature. We are pleased to welcome Justin Kenney to the Board of Directors to help us further this mission. Currently senior adviser on climate, energy and environment with the United Nations Foundation, Justin has deep experience in strategic communication and elevating solutions. Previously, Justin worked for NOAA (under the Obama Administration), the White House Council on Environmental Quality (under the Clinton Administration), the Pew Charitable Trusts, and Walton Family Foundation.
Dr. Amanda Stanley, COMPASS Executive Director, said “Justin brings a wealth of experience at the intersection of science, policy, and communications. He’s also an incredibly thoughtful collaborator, and embodies the values of generosity, relationship, and community that we seek to bring to our work. We look forward to his insight as we build on COMPASS’s twenty years of success.”
Justin shared “The decisions we make today will determine the kind of world we leave for our children. At the heart of a healthy planet is science, and COMPASS’s work in helping scientists become better communicators is more important than ever.”
