Majora Carter: President, Majora Carter Group, LLC

"Green-Collar Jobs" are attracting press, but few have actually marshaled the resources to get unemployed Americans trained and placed on pathways out of poverty in this growing economic sector. Majora Carter has.

Born, raised, and continuing to live in the South Bronx, Carter works to improve the quality of life in environmentally challenged communities. She founded Sustainable South Bronx in 2001 and implemented the highly successful Bronx Environmental Stewardship Training (BEST) program- a pioneering green-collar job training and placement system -- seeding communities with a skilled workforce that has both a personal & economic stake in their urban environment. She is currently president of the green-collar economic consulting firm the Majora Carter Group, LLC.

Carter is a MacArthur "Genius" Fellow who was selected in 2007 as one of Newsweek's "25 To Watch", and one of Essence Magazine's "25 most Influential African Americans". She has been named one of the "50 most influential women in NYC" by the NY Post for the past two years, and "NYC's most influential environmentalist" by the BBC World Service. Majora is currently recording a special national public radio series called "The Promised Land" for 2009 release.
