WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) announced Senior Fellow Gabriella Hoffman will step into a new role as the Director for the Center for Energy and Conservation (CEC) at IWF. 

A freelance media strategist and award-winning writer, Gabriella Hoffman has concurrently served as a CEC policy expert and IWF senior fellow. Hoffman is passionate about conservation and the advancement of freedom and liberty as a key ingredient for strong communities and a healthy environment. Hoffman also hosts the District of Conservation podcast and CFACT original video series “Conservation Nation.”

IWF’s Center for Energy and Conservation is dedicated to reshaping the conversation about American energy and conservation. By focusing on areas of work such as energy independence, land conservation, and ESG policies, the CEC educates the public about the benefits of modern energy, including thriving economies and healthy communities. 

This year, Hoffman was integral to the establishment of IWF’s National Energy Appreciation Day (NEAD), which will be observed annually on October 4 to recognize energy’s vital role and the men and women who power America’s energy sector. The  CEC led the charge by working with members of Congress, industry leaders, and coalition partners to celebrate America’s domestic energy industry. 

“I’m thrilled to oversee our Center for Energy and Conservation and help advance solutions that promote energy security, true conservation, and balanced use. IWF is actively steering the conversation on issues like ESG and environmental stewardship. Women care about policies affecting their ability to fuel their cars, power their homes, feed their families through farming or hunting, protect property rights, and access public lands for multiple uses.  As Director, I will accelerate our impact and widen our reach in the media, in the halls of Congress, and with important stakeholders,” said Gabby Hoffman.

We are thrilled to have Gabby step into this leadership role,” said IWF President, Carrie Lukas, “Gabby is one of those rare policy experts who is also masterful at connecting with people and making complex topics understandable.  We know she is going to make CEC even more effective.” 

CEC also works to level-set fear-based rhetoric surrounding the climate and cultivate meaningful policies that lead to cleaner air, cleaner water, and a lower-emissions future. In a recent op-ed this year, Hoffman wrote, “Americans can proactively support worthy environmental causes within their communities through voluntary, private means without the force of government or repeating the ‘woke’ mantras of ESG.”

The future of the Center for Energy and Conservation is bright with Hoffman at the helm. Read more about the CEC here.
