I met Anna Clark over ten years ago when she was a consultant for International Finance Corporation, the private-sector arm of the World Bank, where she helped our team develop content and communication strategy to showcase sustainable finance best practices. After becoming the Executive Director of the Hunt Institute for Engineering & Humanity at SMU, I hired Anna to help organize a climate change conference leading up to COP21 in Paris, which attracted hundreds of participants from across all sectors and disciplines, and turned into the largest-ever climate conference held in Texas as that time. Anna and I later co-founded the award-winning Inclusive Economy Consortium, where she has played an important leadership role. She continues to play an important ongoing role in the Hunt Institute as both a fellow and consultant on strategy and communication, most recently advising on the development of an impact report covering the 10 years since the founding of the Institute. Anna has been an instrumental partner over the past decade, working at the cutting edge of climate-smart inclusive economic development.”

We were elated to host Anna Clark as one of our plenary speakers at our Mission and Environment Conference in Orlando, Florida. Anna was the perfect fit as she unraveled the economic, health, and spiritual benefits of having a greener lifestyle. In a time of economic uncertainty, her session was of great benefit to many Salvation Army leaders in charge of budgeting, grants, and fund-raising. She was well prepared and active in the weekend beyond what she was asked to do. Anna was a great addition to our conference. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”
