ON Semiconductor’s Lana Hall, senior program manager for corporate social responsibility (CSR), was selected to participate in Arizona Forward’s 2020-21 Emerging Sustainability Leaders Program. Arizona Forward is Arizona’s leading sustainability nonprofit organization. With over 50 years of experience, its 150+ member organizations share a common goal of preserving balance between responsible growth, environmental quality and long-term sustainability.

Participants are chosen for their commitment to sustainability; capacity to integrate sustainability into their organization; interest in being a long-term influencer in Arizona’s sustainability initiatives; and the capacity to take on new challenges. The selection process also considered a balance of government, nonprofit and business organizations.

This year’s program leaders will develop a broad awareness and understanding of the social, environmental, ethical and economic challenges of sustainability as well as opportunities facing Arizona. They will cultivate the ability to drive business leadership to achieve real systems change and acquire the knowledge, experience and skills to critically evaluate a range of strategic levers for change.

As senior program manager for the CSR team, Lana oversees social investment and sustainable projects that are significant to the reputation of ON Semiconductor, such as the assisting in the recognition of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the second year in a row. Lana has been instrumental in receiving several sustainability awards for the company. From presenting on CSR transparency at a conference in Seoul, Korea to introducing small-impact changes, Lana leads by example. She earned her Sustainable Master of Business Administration from Unity College and a Bachelor of Science in conservation biology from Arizona State University. Lana is a long-time volunteer with an animal rescue. Native to Yuma, Arizona, Lana is an avid explorer of her beautiful state with her two pitbulls, a lover of live music at local venues and advocates and the person who convinces her friends to start composting. Lana is excited to be surrounded by like-minded individuals that are passionate about sustainability and working towards enhancing and improving Arizona for the generations to come.
