It is worth noting that Corzo was one of the first senior staff members appointed by Gensler.  

Corzo’s appointment indicated that the SEC was reading to embrace progressive policies by emphasizing environmental concerns.

She ended up parting ways with the agency in May after a three-year stint at the agency.
