About the Keynote Speaker:
Claudine Schneider is a former US House of Representative Congress Women, she was the first woman ever elected to a major political office in Rhode Island. Claudine played a key role in developing the Economic Equity Act and the Pension Equity Act which initiated reforms related to pay equity, child care, pension reform, vocational education and infant mortality. She also served on the Executive Committee of the Congressional Caucus on Women's Issues. In South Korea for the Asia Foundation, she trained women to campaign for public office and how to implement the principles of democracy. After leaving Congress, she served as a member of the faculty of the John F. Kennedy School of Government of Harvard University.
Schneider is an Emmy recipient for her work on “Capital to Capital” an ABC news broadcast. Her concern over deteriorating U.S./Soviet relations resulted in the first live and unedited satellite television transmission between Members of Congress and Members of the Supreme Soviet. The series emphasized the commonalities we had with our Cold War enemies at a time when the President was referring to them as the ‘Evil Empire'. This 5 part series of "Capitol to Capitol" was carried on ABC. With a Democratic House colleague, she conceived the program, raised the funds for a pilot, produced a 5 part series and starred in the segment on The Environment.
Since that time Claudine has been a Co-Founder and Senior VP of an energy efficiency and renewable energy development company and served as a Senior Executive and Advisor on multiple energy, solar, green and environmental organizations. She was nominated by the U.S. EPA for their Global Climate Protection Award for 2007 and is ranked #387 on the Science Hall of Fame ranked for her cultural footprint by weighing scientific impact.
Currently Ms. Schneider is an Independent Consultant, primarily on energy and the environmental, for both companies and non-profits.
