Kathy Dawson

Kathy is gratefully retired, and busy applying her energy, knowledge and skills to the challenge of reversing global warming.

A systems thinker, she has adopted a phrase from the Pachamama Alliance’s vision statement as her guiding principle—to bring forth “an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet”. Committed to reversing global warming, she recognizes that change will be required at every level of society and works to support those changes by example, by informing others, and by advocating for governmental change. She is passionate about creating climate, environmental, and social justice in the process of making the needed changes.

Her majors were in Mechanical Engineering at MIT and in Whole Systems Design/Organizational Systems Renewal at Antioch University Seattle. Her career was primarily in the manufacturing sector and included testing equipment destined for space, alternative energy sales, configuration management, developing quality improvement systems, and practice management. She currently serves as co-chair of the Climate Reality Project’s King County Chapter.
