Bethany Mabee

VALUABLES Consortium Deputy Director

Bethany Mabee is the deputy director of the VALUABLES Consortium, a cooperative agreement between Resources for the Future (RFF) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The consortium measures how information from satellites benefits people and the environment when we use it to make decisions.

Before coming to RFF in 2017, Mabee led strategic communications for the $500 million Gulf Research Program at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. She joined the program shortly after it was created in a research role spanning offshore oil and gas, environmental resources, and community resilience.

Earlier in her career, Mabee served on the staff of the independent commission President Obama formed after the 2010 Gulf oil spill and developed sustainability messaging for senior managers and scientists at the US Environmental Protection Agency. She began her career in management consulting and agency-side marketing communications.
