The Nelson Institute’s Tracey Holloway was recently named to the inaugural advisory board of the Outrider Foundation, a Madison-based nonprofit that that addresses issues of nuclear security and climate change through multimedia storytelling. Founded in 1999, Outrider partners with creators, thought leaders, and news organization to explain and show humanity’s impact on these important issues.
Holloway is one of 12 experts in climate change, nuclear issues, philanthropy, and journalism selected to guide Outrider’s media projects and partnerships.
“There are so many opportunities for improved communication to impact our world,” Holloway said. “I’m looking forward to contributing to Outrider’s efforts to tackle climate change and other sustainability challenges.”
Among the newly named board members are scientists, philanthropists, journalists, policy experts, and more. Last year, author and digital executive Robert K. Elder joined Outrider as its new president and CEO, ushering in new opportunities and partnerships, including the creation of the first advisory board.
“It’s an exciting time at Outrider, and I couldn’t be more grateful to this talented group of people,” said Elder of the board members. “They will be essential in helping to evolve the organization and shape its future and the impact we will make in the world.”
