Emory Climate Talks Webinar – Yeou Rong-Jih of Greenlink Analytics

April 7, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Emory Climate Talks is pleased to announce a webinar series. In times of uncertainty, creating community around shared issues is vital to our academic work. We are committed to bringing together experts in various fields to share their experience working and studying in the field of climate change and sustainability.  As we have moved to a virtual world around coronavirus, we can start thinking more as a community about what it’s like to prepare for climate change. We invite you keep informed about our programming through our newsletter – please sign up here!

Please join us on Tuesday, April 7, at 3 pm for the next webinar installment with Emory alumna, Yeou-Rong Jih (C’04), who currently serves as the Director of Urban Initiatives at Greenlink Analytics, an environmental NGO that helps cities design clean and equitable energy plans and policies based on Greenlink’s award-winning climate analysis models.

Yeou received her undergraduate degree from Emory University in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology and a Master of Science in Research Psychology from the University of Oxford. Post graduate school, she worked at the Sierra Club Georgia Chapter as a Volunteer Coordinator and the City of Atlanta as a Senior Manager of Resilience Policy and Programs. Her project portfolio at the City included helping create and implement the Atlanta Resilience Strategy, building the Proctor Creek Greenway Trail, managing initiatives related to the City’s alternative fueled vehicle fleet, and aiding in the creation of the City’s 100% Clean Energy Plan. Aside from work, Yeou serves on the executive board of the Georgia Conservancy’s Generation Green Young Professionals Board and is a member of the LEAD Atlanta 2020 Class.

We look forward to “seeing” you on Tuesday, April 7th at 3:00 p.m. (EST) via Zoom:  https://emory.zoom.us/j/921922158 Meeting ID :893-342-904
