Lynn Broaddus founded Broadview Collaborative, Inc. in 2014 to bring a systems approach to the complexities at the intersection of water, energy, food, soil, buildings, and transportation, all in a context of resource sustainability, community resiliency, and social equity. As President, she oversees all aspects of the firm, with special focus on strategic directions and partnerships. She also serves as a nonresident fellow with the Metropolitan Policy Program of the Brookings Institution.
Prior to establishing Broadview, Dr. Broaddus led The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread’s environment program from 2008-2014, convening hundreds of national leaders to address looming challenges in U.S. freshwater management. This work covered a wide range of topics such as the connections among freshwater and climate change, infrastructure and built environment, agriculture, energy, finance and public health, resulting in more than a dozen publications on U.S. water management needs.
Dr. Broaddus also served for six years as executive director of Milwaukee Riverkeeper®, and for 12 years with The Nature Conservancy and a related organization, NatureServe. Earlier career experiences include energy conservation and teaching. She earned her Ph.D. in botany and genetics from Duke University, an M.B.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and her bachelor’s degree in environmental sciences from the University of Virginia.
