Mercedes Solis, VP Operations

I am a Chemical Engineer; after school, I worked as a consultant at Mercer which is a company that focuses specifically on human resource consulting. Mercer helps solve the strategic issues of human capital and has a global presence.

Sustainability matters to me because we have to make sure that businesses focus on environmental, human and financial sustainability. Also, I believe that this can work and will benefit companies specifically on the environmental part. Rotman Net Impact is a club where I can combine my MBA with my passion of doing something sustainable for the planet, creating an impact and a change in how our classmates see business.

I am the VP operations at Net Impact; I work with all the executives so that the events and case competitions have everything necessary for them to be a success.

I once helped baby Sting rays that were washed ashore to return to the ocean.
