In 1999, Winslow spearheaded an initiative at Nike to ensure the company was socially responsible and environmentally friendly.

She also participated in the 2009 Inspire Antarctic Expedition, hosted by British Petroleum and led by polar explorer Robert Swan.

The expedition engaged climate scientists, business, youth and community leaders and polar experts to collaborate to understand the roles in sustainability.

Winslow is currently a senior lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management and program director for Willamette University’s Sustainable Enterprise Program.

She holds a bachelor’s degree in exercise science and a master’s degree in exercise physiology and biomechanics. She is a 2003 graduate of the Stanford Executive Program. She serves on the board of advisers for the Northwest Earth Institute, the Portland Sustainability Institute, Greenopolis and the Cloud Institute for Sustainability Education.
