There’s another one of these posts buried on this blog but I thought it would be easier to repost it here. (And I think I just missed my own deadline.)  Unfortunately, as the blog administrator, I will be known as J500 instead of SimranS.

It’s great to be working with all of you.  Here’s my spiel:

Simran Sethi is a sustainable business contributor to CNBC and the Lacy C. Haynes Visiting Professional Chair at the University of Kansas School of Journalism and Mass Communications, where she teaches courses on environmental communications. Simran is writing a book on environmental equity for Harper Collins and is the contributing author of Ethical Markets: Growing the Green Economy, winner of the bronze 2008 Axiom Award for Best Business Ethics book. She is the co-host/ writer of Sundance Channel’s environmental programming The Green and the creator of the Sundance web series The Good Fight, highlighting global environmental justice efforts and grassroots activism.

Named one of the top ten eco-heroes of the planet by the UK’s Independent and lauded as the “environmental messenger” by Vanity Fair, Simran has contributed segments to Nightly News with Brian Williams, the Today Show, the Oprah Winfrey Show, the Ellen DeGeneres Show and the Martha Stewart Show.  She is committed to a redefinition of environmentalism that includes voices from the prairie, the inner-city and the global community.  Simran serves on the Sustainability Advisory Board in Lawrence, Kansas and is the Chair of the City’s task force working group on climate change education, outreach and policy.

Simran currently blogs about energy policy and life cycle analysis for The Huffington Post.  She has been a featured guest on National Public Radio and is the host of the Emmy-award winning PBS documentary “A School in the Woods.”  Simran graduated cum laude with a BA in Sociology and Women’s Studies from Smith College and holds an MBA in sustainable management from the Presidio School of Management.

The series for the Sundance Channel is really cool and informative. I am also inspired and hope to go back.

Thanks, Tyler! We are currently looking for funding. A sad but true fact about the current state of media.
