About the Event

Wiselogo Intext

Building Energy Exchange is proud to present the third year of WISE: Women in Sustainability and Energy, a lecture series and networking forum showcasing women leaders in the sustainability and energy fields.

The theme of WISE 2017 is “A Year of Action.” Each event in the 2017 series will advance the dialogue on what we can do, as individuals and as a community, to take action and ensure a more sustainable future.

Join us for the first event of the series, “Means & Methods: Pathways of Change.” This panel discussion will feature female professionals from four fields crucial to effecting change in this sphere: higher education, public policy, buildings & architecture, and finance.

In addition to discussing the role their work plays in achieving important sustainability and energy goals, the panelists will reflect on their professional challenges and achievements, and the pathways they took to develop their careers.

Women in Sustainability and Energy (WISE) showcases inspirational women leaders who are accelerating the sustainability and energy efficiency of our buildings and our  cities. This popular series brings together women from a diversity of fields to discuss cutting-edge policies, technologies, and programs; providing a networking forum and framework for year round dialogue.
