On Tuesday, Oct. 10, HELI will host a fireside chat style discussion between Dean Kevin Washburn and Tanya Trujillo, Iowa Law graduate (92JD) and former Assistant Secretary for Water and Science at the US Department of the Interior. Assistant Secretary Trujillo is currently the Water Policy Advisor to the New Mexico Governor and Deputy State Engineer. Assistant Secretary Trujillo will discuss her perspectives as an Iowa law graduate whose winding career path took her from private practice to the nonprofit sector and then roles in federal and state government. Assistant Secretary Trujillo, who recently worked on the challenging project of adjusting historical water allocations for the Colorado River, will speak about her experience in the natural resources field, including nonprofit work on water stakeholder negotiations in the West and state and federal efforts to implement science-based climate policy.
This event will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2023 from 5:30–6:30 p.m. in the Boyd Law Building. A virtual viewing option will be available. Food is provided for those who register in advance.
