What is one of your proudest career achievements?
Creating a company, AES Solar, more than half of whose 125 employees were women or minorities. This included half of the corporate officers. And this group in five years executed 51 solar projects in seven countries, and when sold was one of the ten largest solar companies in the world.
If you had one super-power to help tackle one social issue, what would that power be?
We all have a super power, and that is the ability to change sunshine into electricity. Bringing electricity to people who don’t have it stimulates economic development, enhances health, and extends life spans. You can now have light, refrigeration and clean water. There is not greater solution to problems of poverty and health.
