Summary
Gale Norton will share her experiences in high-stakes Washington politics, where she led initiatives affecting energy, wildlife, water, and forest policies. Policy change involved complex challenges ranging from energy crises to endangered species, recreation to litigation. As Secretary of the Interior, Norton used a "cooperative conservation" approach, aligning regulatory, budgetary, personnel, legislative and media policies to encourage local collaboration in federal land management. Based on these first-hand experiences, she will share insights about the types of proposals and strategies that can best achieve political and practical success.
