Following on from our first listing back in 2017, we've compiled the top women leading the climate conversation across science, business, government, and academia, for 2020! Part of our ongoing Ordinary Club of Extraordinary Women.

These women from around the world are at the forefront of the response to climate initiatives and hold a bedrock of knowledge relative to progress on the issue. Many of the women in this conversation can be reached via their Twitter handle, included here for an easy follow, and handy for those planning extraordinary future panels related to climate solutions.

We're now expanding this listing and we'd like your help! Do you know an extraordinary woman working in climate that we should include? Nominate them now!
