New MAKER: Robyn Beavers

 

Robyn Beavers is a pioneer, and in more ways than one. As a civil engineer who focuses on sustainability and renewable energy, Robyn Beavers has become a leader in the corporate green movement. Her commitment to sustainability and green innovation has made her the choice to lead environmental initiatives at companies like Google and Vestas.

 

Beavers acknowledges she is a trailblazer in another sense, as a woman in a field dominated by men, she has often “been the only girl.” This has become even more pronounced as she has moved up the corporate ladder, where men hold approximately 85% of leadership positions.
