TEPRI is excited to congratulate our Executive Director, Dana Harmon, for receiving the Marshall Memorial Fellowship (MMF) from The German Marshall Fund of the United States.The MMF is a leadership development program that prepares a new generation of leaders for transatlantic relations across all industries. Dana is one of 75 recipients this year and will join a community of 2500 members who have demonstrated a devotion to leadership and inciting change in their areas.
Margo Weisz, Vice Chair of the Board of Directors for TEPRI, is a past recipient of the Marshall Memorial Fellowship. She says of Dana’s selection:
“As an alumnus of the German Marshall Memorial Fellows program, the fellowship was formative for my life and career, and I am confident that the program will also be enriching for Dana. Throughout Dana’s tenure as Executive Director of TEPRI, I have witnessed her commitment to leadership and her uniquely collaborative style. Each year I seek to nominate promising leaders, like Dana, who are solving some of nation’s biggest problems to learn from our European counterparts at the EU and throughout the different countries.
Energy may be the most dynamic industry of our age, and I am confident Dana will find the MMF to be an intellectually exhilarating environment to explore holistic approaches to new energy solutions, and to alleviating energy barriers for the underserved. Dana is a first-rate leader and will represent us well as an ambassador to Europe to discuss the pressing issues around energy that we face around the globe.”
Dana is looking forward to beginning this special experience. She shares:
“I am honored and humbled to join such a distinguished network of leaders from the US and Europe. This program provides a unique opportunity for growth and idea exchange among all sectors, including business, government, and civil society. I’m excited to learn and contribute to a robust dialogue around some of our society‘s most pressing issues through the Marshall Memorial Fellowship, and I look forward to leveraging this opportunity to continue to advance TEPRI’s impact on energy poverty in Texas.”
