Colorado C3E draws on the immense experience of our board to shape the organization and drive our programming. We were thrilled when Ellen Morris and Tami Bond joined our brain trust in December 2020 and September 2021, respectively.
Dr. Ellen Morris is the Director of University Partnerships at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and holds a joint appointment at the Colorado School of Mines in the Engineering, Design and Society program. A world-renowned expert on energy and international development, Morris’s work focuses on policy analysis, research, strategy development, and writing on energy access, gender equality and business models.
Morris has been addressing equity and inclusion in the clean energy workforce her whole career: “By working with rising stars and seasoned veterans interested in changing the world, I believe we can realize a clean energy future for Colorado and beyond.”
Dr. Tami Bond is the Walter Scott, Jr. Presidential Chair in Energy, Environment and Health and a mechanical engineering professor at Colorado State University. Through her work, Bond aims to understand the human activity that leads to environmental impact. Her research explores the intimate relationship between technology choice, human need and infrastructure.
