SGupta Consulting LLC
Strategic Advisor | Activist | Speaker
Bringing a historic and international lens to my life's work - I center ecological sustainability, community health, and social justice. I have over 20 years of experience encompassing research, policy advocacy, community education, facilitation, writing, and nonprofit start ups/management. My work is intersectional, with specific expertise in the fields of energy, climate policy, and environmental justice.
I work with foundations, funder networks, donors, city and state government agencies, nonprofits, artists, and community based organizations to integrate a justice lens into environmental and climate programmatic work.
