Diane Tran

Senior project manager
Grassroots Solutions

Besides her work at Grassroots Solutions, a consulting firm that works with grassroots organizations, Tran directs Minnesota field activities for the Pew Charitable Trust’s program to advance federal clean energy policies, and serves on several nonprofit boards. In addition, the self-described “practical optimist” founded Minnesota Rising, an emerging-leader network. In short, she’s one of those high-energy people who don’t seem to need much sleep.
