Crain's Names Frisbie a 2022 Notable Leader in Sustainability

Crain’s Chicago Business has named Friends’ Executive Director Margaret Frisbie as one of their 2022 Notable Leaders in Sustainability. The notable leaders include public, private, academic, and non-profit professionals throughout the Chicago area.

Crain’s notes: “Frisbie, appointed in 2005, has recently launched multiple initiatives to better incorporate community engagement and environmental justice into sustainability practices. These efforts include a podcast that highlights river-edge public lands and a yearlong community-based conversation about Chicago’s sewage and the river that was documented in a report giving voice to public needs. Frisbie has also helped the Greater Chicago Watershed Alliance (originally established as the Chicago-Calumet River Watershed Council), a collaborative of 19 public, private and nonprofit members, begin the Natural Solutions Tool development, adapted from The Trust for Public Lands’ Climate Smart Cities to prioritize natural community improvements.”
