Green Source On the Air logoWe'll explore how extraordinary women have impacted the environmental movement in this month’s episode of Green Source On the Air airing Thursday, Aug. 19, at 6 p.m. on Zoom. Join the show here.

Dallas College, a major sponsor for the monthly broadcast, is organizing this episode titled “Female Eco-Warriors.”

“History often overlooks the accomplishments of women and Black, Indigenous and People of Color,” say the guest producers from Dallas College. “We’ll explore the many contributions diverse women have made as they work to protect the environment and develop sustainable solutions that protect people and the economy as well.” 

The conversation will look at high-profile women who have had an impact globally and will progress to local women in sustainability who have done significant work in North Texas. 

Georgeann MossGeorgeann Moss, Senior Director of Sustainability at Dallas College, will lead the program with Lori Delacruz Lewis, Assistant Director of Sustainability Education. 

Panelists include some of North Texas’ own female eco warriors including Georgeann Elliott Moss, senior director of sustainability for Dallas College and 2015 winner of the GSDFW Lifetime Achievement Award, who will kick off the discussion.

Moss is the founding director of Dallas College’s Sustainability Outreach and Initiatives, which was created in November 2017.  However, her leadership in sustainability dates back to 2007, when she co-founded Dallas College’s first sustainability team.

Moss will be joined by her colleague Lori Delacruz Lewis, Assistant Director of Sustainability Education at Dallas College. 

Delacruz Lewis has more than 25 years of experience in environmental and sustainability topics. She is pursuing a PhD in Urban Planning and Public Policy from the University of Texas at Arlington and has a master’s of Sustainability and Development from Southern Methodist University.

Other guests include Terry Shultz, sales director for United Electronic Recycling Inc. and founder of the Dallas-based non-profit Women in the Environment. In addition, Margie Jackson Haley, a Dallas-based environmental activist and philanthropist and 2014 winner of the GSDFW Lifetime Achievement Award, will provide some history on the local environmental scene.

Margie HaleyDallas environmentalist Margie Haley will be a guest panelist.

“Margie is the matriarch of environmental activism in Dallas,” said Moss and Delacruz Lewis, the episode's producers. “She has been working to protect the environment for more than 30 years, actively greening her own home and activities while educating thousands of others by bringing many legends of environmental protection to Dallas. Without the workshops, conferences and networking events she produced, North Texas would not be the environmental leader it is today.” 

The show is free and attendees will be able to participate in a Q&A session at the end of the program.

Join the live broadcast. The show will also be archived on the Green Source Youtube page.
