Ashley Quay, who graduated from the School of Sustainability's Executive Master of Sustainability Leadership program in January 2019, was one of two winners of the Knowledge Impact Mobilization Awards presented by the Graduate College at Arizona State University. These awards recognize graduate students who are translating research into real-world impact.
Quay's project, “Positively Impactful,” is a social-media campaign and website that highlights changes people are making to be more sustainable. “The doom-and-gloom approach is leaving people disheartened, overwhelmed and stagnant to change,” Quay said, so she used what she learned during her studies to take a more positive, inspirational approach.
