Meet Your Chief Strategist
Betsy López-Wagner is Chief Strategist at López-Wagner Strategies and serves as the Strategic Communications Partner for ALRAS Digital. Betsy is a mentor, coach, trainer and storyteller, developing and advising on equitable and inclusive strategies for social good. She offers consulting services in DEI assessment, training and language access, bilingual, environmental and equitable communications, political and advocacy campaigns, strategic partnerships, community and movement building, inclusive grantmaking, Latino/a/x, Black, Indigenous, and communities of color engagement, environmental policy, and media relations with a racial justice and equity lens.
She has worked alongside attorneys and lobbyists to safeguard the health of communities, protect our air and water, fight arctic drilling and protect the ocean’s resources. And – she’s co-devised strategies alongside grassroots activists to ensure their power is seen, heard and felt from regional to national levels. She is committed to supporting the growth of an inclusive and equitable conservation movement to strengthen global, national and state-level priorities to protect our environment, democracy, and above all, people – especially those on the frontlines of an increasingly warming planet, rising ocean and social injustice.
