The Chapter is thrilled to share another contribution to the community on the USGBC National Education Platform. Board Member, Shawn Hesse, originally shared this presentation at a Green Breakfast in 2015, where he wow'ed the crowd of professionals and students from Wentworth Institute of Technology.
Over the last few months, he has developed this Social Equity and LEED presentation for the global audience on the USGBC's Education Platform. We have just aired the webinar to all with a USGBC education subscription. If you do not yet have an Education@USGBC subscription, please click here. Using this link enables the Chapter to earn a share of the income from USGBC.
The USGBC has identified “fostering social equity” as a driving principle in its strategic plan, and in 2014, launched three new Social Equity credits as part of the LEED v4 Pilot Credit library. The three credits; Social Equity in the Project, Social Equity in the Community, and Social Equity in the Supply Chain reward project teams for implementing best practices in improving social equity.
