She has worked with the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to address education inequality by transforming our nation’s urban centers into Cities of Learning; with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to reduce tension at a Pennsylvania Superfund site; and to help residents and businesses in Santa Monica, Calif., reduce their water consumption by 20%.
