Diane Irene Meyer Simon has devoted her life to numerous organizations and businesses spanning Indiana, where she was Indianapolis Woman of the Year, and California, where she moved in 1989.
Diane is Founder, President Emerita and Past Chair of Global Green USA, which she founded following a Moscow Board Meeting of Green Cross International (GCI) in August 1993 with President Mikhail Gorbachev, who personally enlisted her to organize a US affiliate and become a member of the GCI Honorary Board.
Since then, Diane has committed herself to personally spear-heading the GG USA agenda and moulding a message of international environmental responsibility for an American audience.
As president of Global Green USA, Diane brought to fruition a 38-year political career as staffer, organizer, administrator, fundraiser and strategist. Her work with Mikhail Gorbachev is of a global nature and magnitude, as is her work with the Sadat Peace Foundation. Over the years spanning 1993 through nearly 2005, Diane has remained the driving force in representing an agenda and a vision for Global Green USA and Green Cross International.
