Dianne Callan is an E2 New England Chapter Director with over 30 years of professional experience, most recently as Vice President and General Counsel and Secretary for NMS Communications Corporation, a publicly-held telecommunications solutions provider, and as Deputy General Counsel for Lotus Development Corporation for 10 years. She is also a founding member of Green Pro Bono, an organization which assists climate-change driven non-profits to define their legal needs and to access the pro bono legal network. Dianne co-authored “More Than Meets the Eye: The Social Cost of Carbon in U.S. Climate Policy in Plain English”, published by ELI and WRI in July 2011. She has recently taken graduate law courses in Energy Regulation and Environmental Law.
Dianne Callan was first introduced to E2 in 2005 at a luncheon and quickly realized that it was a great place to learn and network. “E2 provided interesting learning opportunities and engendered a lot of respect in part because of its affiliation with NRDC.”
E2 has given her exposure to a lot of New England’s most pressing issues. She has worked extensively on wind turbine siting issues and, with other business and environmental advocates, she has worked to improve the RGGI (New England’s Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative aiming to limit pollution and creation of greenhouse gases). Dianne views energy issues as of primary importance to New England. “I find the economics and business ramifications of energy and climate policies challenging and compelling. E2 has given me the opportunity to participate in important state and federal political advocacy work.”
Dianne speaks with pride when she talks about the accomplishments of E2 in the passage and implementation of important Massachusetts legislation, including the Green Communities Act and the Global Warming Solutions Act and otherwise providing an independent business voice on critical environmental issues in New England.
