Antha N. Williams leads the Environment Program at Bloomberg Philanthropies, Michael R. Bloomberg’s philanthropic organization with a mission to ensure better, longer lives for the greatest number of people. Under Antha’s direction, Bloomberg Philanthropies supports environmental initiatives to improve sustainability of cities around the world, to accelerate the transition to clean energy, and to combat overfishing.
