Vice President of Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for The Cheesecake Factory
Megan Bloomer has made a career out of helping companies become more sustainable. She has been successful because she demonstrates that sustainability is much more than a recycling program.
“I can tell you what goes into which recycling bin,” Bloomer said, “but let’s go talk about how we can save $20 million on energy.”
In addition to making business sustainable, Bloomer helps current Randolph College students connect their liberal arts and science backgrounds to careers. In addition to setting up internship programs, she often corresponds with students to offer advice on resumes and jobs.
“I believe no one got where they are in life without someone else helping them along the way,” Bloomer said. “The success that I have today in my professional life is due to a lot of people who walk around on that campus. The ability to spend an hour of my time helping current undergrads have that same kind of experience is really important to me.”Tags: enviromental science outcomes, environmental science, environmental studies, environmental studies outcomes, outcomes
