Cora Lee Mooney
Director of Learning
As Director of Learning with BrownFlynn, Cora Lee leads the Firm’s training programs on materiality, the GRI G4 framework, stakeholder engagement, and other sustainability topics. She also serves as an advisor to her clients in manufacturing, consumer goods and services, health care, and real estate. She develops corporate responsibility strategies, white papers, internal training programs, public disclosures, investor responses, practical roadmaps, and compelling presentations.
A philosopher by training, Cora Lee has the ability to take an extremely complex subject and break it down into simple concepts that are easily understood. She enjoys the pressure of making a good argument and provides a healthy skepticism that demands the business case for any sustainability project. Cora Lee’s professional background includes work in corporate training, regulatory auditing for K-12 Charter schools, industrial supply chain management, and 12 years’ experience teaching at the college level.
At home, Cora Lee enjoys coloring pictures and playing outside with her son, Ian. Her family counts on her to teach their teenagers how to drive, jump in the car for last-minute day trips, sulk about the Cleveland Browns, and become a fair-weather fan whenever her husband’s favorite team is winning. She’s also known to say outrageous things just to make sure people are still listening to her.
