Hot Mamas

On this episode of Hot Mamas, I talk to Nicole Sitaraman, a hot mama of a six-year-old son, and a leading voice for climate resilience, clean energy and environmental justice.

She shares her journey,  from growing up in Philly, the daughter of a strong mother who made sure Nicole had the opportunities she needed to succeed, to starting out in her career as a civil rights attorney, and how that led her to work creating more just and sustainable communities with Sustainable Capital Advisors.

NIcole and I talk about the importance of raising kids in community, how becoming a mom has shifted her worldview, and why it's critical we have honest conversations with our children about race.

We also get to hear her expert perspective on the reconciliation bill now in Congress and the policies we need to kick our fossil fuel habit. Tune in for this inspiring and informative conversation with Nicole!
