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.

In just two years, WISE has produced nine sold out events, featuring 26 women professionals, attracting over 800 attendees, and engaging many more through social media. BEEx is building on this enthusiastic response with creative WISE programming designed to support the growth and education of this community.
