When Jane Stahl began her environmental career in the late 1970s, it was – not surprisingly – a male-dominated field. She did not let this deter her, and worked as an environmental policymaker, regulator and consultant during her career. Notably, she served as deputy commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection for eight years, where she was responsible for the state’s Air, Waste, Water and Long Island Sound Programs.
In this new video for NEIWPCC’s 75th anniversary, Stahl reflects on her career, the role of NEIWPCC, and the progress she’s witnessed to diversify the environmental field.
