Lucy’s mission statement, updated in January 2016, “Going forward, I want to find opportunities as the "catalyst" for positive change, using the skills, wisdom, knowledge and resources I accumulated in the last 40 years.   I want to engage societal issues that require transformation using technology and business principles, with Sustainable Development Goals as measurable outcomes.  I enjoy working with young adults, encouraging them to awaken the abilities that have been lying dormant within and to arouse and extend their souls' aspiration to become full and complete.  I am interested in learning from like-minded citizens from around the world and contributing to the part of the world I touch.  Together we will make our planet a better place for generations to come.”
