The Environmental Law Institute (ELI) recently announced the appointment of four new members to its Board of Directors, including Howard University School of Law alumna Stacey Halliday. The institute’s Board includes environmental leaders from all sectors, including private law practice, corporate management, nongovernmental organizations, and academia. With this newest class of board members, the institute has for the first time achieved gender parity, with 20 women and 20 men now serving on its Board. This class also represents further progress toward the institute’s goal of having one of the most racially diverse boards in the environmental field.
Halliday, an independent consultant, advises clients on environmental compliance and corporate social responsibility matters, including product stewardship, sustainability disclosures, and environmental justice. In August 2019, she founded Global Environmental Solutions Consulting, LLC, and works closely with Beveridge & Diamond as an environmental consultant. As a former principal at Beveridge & Diamond, Halliday continues to serve the firm's clients with a broad array of environmental compliance, product stewardship, corporate social responsibility, and sustainability services. She joined Beveridge & Diamond in February 2017, immediately following her political appointment as special counsel in the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency's Office of General Counsel. She was also a senior member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's oversight response team, where she provided legal and strategic guidance on congressional investigation and hearing preparation, White House and interagency coordination, and crisis management and strategic communications.
