Grace Gill, Program Assistant, CMI/India/Climate Center, New York

Grace Gill

I grew up in Punjab, an agriculturally dominant state in the northwest part of India, where the swaying wheat fields ingrained in me a keen awareness of how precious our earth is to all who harvest from it. Moving as a little girl first to New York City and then to California only affirmed my appreciation for the incredible diversity of our planet and alerted me to the man-made threats facing it. Studying international relations at the University of Southern California, my interest in environmental advocacy only grew and so here I am, back in NY and working at the intersection of climate and market driven policies.

Aside from work, I love exploring this thrilling city and all its people, sights, tastes, and sounds. When I’m not traipsing around town, you can find me watching foreign films, cooking food from scratch and valiantly exercising after.
