Ms. Bonini is Senior Vice President of Private Sector Engagement for World Wildlife Fund (nonprofit conservation organization), a role she has held since 2016.

Previously, she served as Chief Executive Officer of The Sustainability Consortium, a global nonprofit organization focused on making consumer products more sustainable, from 2014 to 2016. Prior to this role, Ms. Bonini spent more than fifteen years with McKinsey & Company (consulting) in roles in the United States, Europe, and South America, including serving as a Senior Expert Consultant in the firm’s Sustainability and Resource Productivity Practice, as co-leader of its Sustainability Transformation Service, and as a Senior Expert Consultant in its Strategy Practice focusing on Regulatory and Business in Society.
