OUR BIGGEST WOMEN IN GREEN EVENT OF THE YEAR! Women are driving the sustainability of the built environment. We are tasked with the most important mission of all: healing the earth. The Women in Green Roundtable creates opportunities for women to thrive in this work and to raise each other up. Once a year we get together for a larger celebration of powerful women reimagining and reshaping our world. Once again, we will gather virtually during these difficult times.
This year’s annual “BIG WIG” will be a virtual Zoom event
