"It's the day-in and day-out work that makes you say,
Oh! I created something pretty incredible!"
Over her career, Amy Bond has worn many hats.
Yet, regardless of her roles – including her current role managing energy and sustainability programs at Sprint – it's the day-to-day meetings, clear communications and nurtured relationships that she says get results.
Amy inspires us for her tenacity, empathy and sheer positive energy. Talents she says are required to align and motivate diverse teams across Sprint, now part of T-Mobile, one of the largest cellular carriers in the United States, serving 54.5 million mobile customers. For Amy, her commitment to "do the work that matters" helps Sprint achieve its goal to become 100% carbon neutral.
"If our core business is communication, then through a VPPA and being engaged with clean energy, we're communicating that this planet matters. That we matter. That the living things on this earth matter. That's really the highest level of communication."
