Majora Carter made her mark on the South Bronx and the nation, by connecting one of the most economically and environmentally challenged communities to a new brand of solutions-based strategy. As green-infrastructure has taken root in advocacy and corporate circles alike, Majora has continued to push the envelope that she helped to create. By re-imagining America through the lens of what she calls, "Home(town) Security", Majora Carter illuminates the value of smart environmental management on local economic development, and all aspects of our civic and personal lives.
How we adapt to climate changes, manage stormwater, redesign food systems, and reduce social costs, such as public health and incarceration obligations, can have profound effects on the well-being of communities. Majora is a living example of the potential for communities to change the world by changing themselves. She now consults clients around the world on how they can achieve their best performance in all areas and unleash the potential of the most valuable resources available: their people.
