An ELI ELI Program

For the month of July’s Environmental Law Institute Emerging Leaders Initiative (ELI ELI) program, ELI Leadership Council Member Avi Garbow provided TED Talk style opening remarks.

A leader in environmental law and a strong environmental advocate, Avi Garbow has had opportunities to serve in government in both career and political capacities, in a large global law firm, and now at Patagonia. For his remarks, Avi drew upon the parallels and differences in practicing environmental law in these various roles and the different sense of mission in each.

ELI ELI Leaders have distinguished themselves as up and coming environmental professionals in government, firms, corporations, NGOs and academia. We welcome you to join us for the opportunity to learn from an experienced professional who has thrived in several of these same capacities. After the remarks, Leaders are welcomed into regional-based virtual breakout rooms for further conversation and networking.

ELI ELI programs are for the exclusive benefit of Emerging Leaders.
