About our speakers:

Jane Abernethy is Humanscale’s Chief Sustainability Officer. She leads the company’s efforts to create a net positive impact through both its products and operations. Collaborating closely with company executives as well as designers and engineers, Jane guides the development process to help create the most sustainable products possible.

Atiya Jones’s work is centered around human connection. Make + Matter is currently carrying Atiya’s 110 Ruth & Maurice hat. Each piece is hand-knit by Atiya herself, in honor of her grandfather Maurice Williams. By creating this art, she adds value. As a woman of color, this is an act of defiance, empowerment and visibility.

For our opening night of this two-day celebration, we’ll hear from women in sustainable manufacturing on a local and international scale. Feed your mind, and your belly, and be inspired by the unique and important work of our sisters in sustainability in the manufacturing industry.
