Description

Women in Green: The Culture of Courage

In recent times, Women leaders are re-affirming the call and standing for a Culture of Courage more powerful than ever before. Today, women aren’t begging to be heard, or even demanding it, but are simply expecting it. And this deliberate expectation overshadows fear; women are speaking up, women who are bringing attention to injustice, women are supporting each other and not taking “no” or “not right now” for an answer.

Join USGBC Virginia at their 2019 USGBC Women in Green Leadership Luncheon to explore what it means to have a Culture of Courage, celebrating the crucially needed and deliberate voice that women bring to society and to the green building movement.

Our esteemed panel includes:

  • Opening Remarks: Dr. Elizabeth Malcolm, Professor of Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences, Director of Campus Sustainability and Chair of the Earth and Environmental Sciences Department
  • Panelists:
  • Michelle Amt, Director of Sustainability, Associate, VMDO Architects
  • Kimberlee Dobbins, Sustainability Coordinator, Virginia Beach Convention Center
  • Micaela Morris, Assistant Director of Facilities Management, Virginia Weselyan University
  • Moderator: Lindsey Lijana, Project Manager, W.M. Jordan Company

Schedule of Events:

  • 12:00pm Registration and Networking, Lunch Buffet available
  • 12:30pm Moderated Panel Discussion with women green building leaders from across Virginia
  • 1:30pm Tabletop discussions and report outs

Tickets are $20 for USGBC Community members, $30 for non-members, and $10 for students (with valid Student ID).
