School of Sustainability alumna wins award from ASU's Graduate College

Ashley Quay recieving Knowledge Impact Mobilization AwardAshley Quay, who graduated from the School of Sustainability's Executive Master of Sustainability Leadership program in January 2019, was one of two winners of the Knowledge Impact Mobilization Awards presented by the Graduate College at Arizona State University. These awards recognize graduate students who are translating research into real-world impact. Quay's project, β€œPositively Impactful,” is a social-media campaign and website that highlights changes people are making to be more sustainable. β€œThe doom-and-gloom approach is leaving people disheartened, overwhelmed and stagnant to change,” Quay said, so she used what she learned during her studies to take a more positive, inspirational approach.
