Sheroes Stand Up

Our green building sheroes are being called on like never before to stand up! Stand up for what we believe in, stand up for others, stand up for speaking our minds, and stand up for paving the way for future generations of strong women. The building industry has a bright future, due in large part to the role women are playing and will continue to play. That is why Women in Green is gathering our green building Sheroes so we can stand up together for a brighter, more inclusive future on Thursday, June 18, 2020 from 3:30 – 5 PM via WebEx! Women in Green – what are you standing up for?
