WISE: Cleantech Pioneers - Video Excerpt

WISE: Cleantech Pioneers

Building Energy Exchange is proud to present the second year of WISE: Women in Sustainability and Energy, a program series that showcases women leaders who are accelerating the sustainability and energy efficiency of our buildings and cities.

The March 2016 WISE Series, Let’s Get In-formation, will feature two breakfast symposia: Cleantech Pioneers on March 10, and Data-Driven Innovators on March 22.

Join us for Cleantech Pioneers: How are investors and innovators supporting clean technologies.

Our eminent speakers and moderator, who will facilitate a lively discussion, will discuss their professional experiences and achievements, how they created opportunities within a male-dominated field, and insights on building a strong and supportive network for women in the industry.

These symposia will feature a talk-show style moderated discussion followed by curated audience questions and networking. Attendees will have the opportunity to network before and after the presentations.

WISE is a platform for men and women to learn from these leaders’ experiences and how to advance equality in the workplace.
