A few EDF Climate Corps alumni have shared their stories--from where they started to where they are today.   

Radhika Lalit

Senior Associate, Rocky Mountain Institute

Ten years ago, Radhika Lalit was invigorated by a new sense of purpose and determination: Instead of helping people adapt to a changing climate, she was going to stop it from happening.

So when a position in raw materials procurement at Anheuser-Busch opened up, she knew she had found a perfect fit.
