WIE Rise Together Campaign - Lara van Druten

Lara van Druten is the CEO of The Waste Transformers, an award-winning company on a mission to revolutionise how we deal with waste in a way that is circular, green, community-based and smart. She is known for her independent spirit, her energy and entrepreneurial drive. She is also mother to twin boys and an Unreasonable Fellow on a mission to “bend history in the right direction”.

We had the opportunity to sit down with Lara to learn more about her, as well as her experiences as a powerful Woman in Energy. Here's what she had to say.
