The EFG Secretariat is pleased to welcome Maureen Gallagher who recently joined us as the Interim Director of Stakeholder Engagement.

“Geologists play a vital role in understanding earth’s past, managing society’s present, and securing humanity’s future, but they can’t do it alone.”

Maureen has a master’s degree in political science from the University of Missouri and undergraduate degrees in aquatic ecology and zoology. She is a 32-year veteran of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service where she has focused on delivering conservation solutions through stakeholder engagement. She comes to EFG through the Senior Executive Service Career Development Program of the U.S. Department of the Interior.

We invite you to reach out to Maureen to discuss partnerships and relationship building to expand collective public affairs/relations efforts across sectors that play a role in earth sciences, climate adaptation, and energy transition.
