WHEN: Thursday, October 23, 2014
TIME: 7:00 AM – 9:00 AM
WHERE: Great Hall
What’s more fun than going to Greenbuild? Going to the Women in Green Power Breakfast to get together with like-minded women with a passion for sustainability. With uniquely female determination and perspective we will explore the role of sustainability within the economy and work together to mold a future where sustainability is seen as a natural, inalienable right, and a pathway leading women out of poverty and bringing them into a world of economic equality and opportunity for all.
We will begin the morning with exciting round table discussions lead by our handpicked honorary chairs. Small groups will discuss the below prompt questions to get the conversation started.
- What is the role of sustainability in economic empowerment of women around the world?
- How are we using sustainability to move economies, push large challenges, and create pathways to global scale? Economically? Socially? Sustainably?
- How resilient are our systems if we aren’t pushing for opportunity for all? How can we work to achieve this?
Following these conversations we will move to our panel of experts. With introductions by Shannon Stage, this year’s panel showcases forward thinking women leaders across the world who are working tireless to shape their communities and elevate the human spirit. Moderator, Kimberly Lewis, will keep the conversation flowing with our group of impressive panelist which currently includes Martha Jane Murray, Gina Duncan, Priyanka Kochhar, and Robin Carey. These women will continue the table top discussions, calling upon their own personal stories, to bring personal connection to the topic of women and economic empowerment. Because we know you will have questions for this group, a Q&A with the audience will follow.
