Heather McTeer Toney

In honor of Earth Day, we are excited to feature Heather McTeer Toney as our #WCW. Known for her energetic and genuine commitment to people, Heather’s work has made her a national figure in public service, diversity and community engagement. She was the first African-American, first female and youngest mayor of Greenville, MS, where she served two terms. In 2014 through 2017, she was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve as Regional Administrator for Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Southeast Region.

Today, Heather is an expert on environmental and climate justice with SheSource, a publication of the Women’s Media Center, and is known for advocating and training diverse officials on leadership and climate in over 15 countries. In addition, she currently serves as National Field Director for Moms Clean Air Force. Her ambition and desire to share her knowledge and resources to help others is infectious, and ultimately why she is our #WCW this week!
