Generations of Women+ in Green: Steadfast and Strong

This Year’s Theme 

For the Women+ in Green community, the words “Steadfast and Strong” capture how women and transgender people have adapted and endured in an unthinkable year. In the U.S., women’s workforce participation is at a 33-year low, and women+ of color feel these impacts more acutely. Serious economic, health, social, and environmental challenges await us as we look to the road ahead. They are challenges that make Women+ in Green more important than ever, as our families and communities once again look to us for the answers. 

These challenges also reinforce GBA’s vision that every building and every community will be sustainable so that every person can thrive – and we know that environmental, human, and economic health depend on that vision becoming reality. Rebuilding our economy and creating a future where all can thrive will require different perspectives, new ideas, and the courage to challenge what we think we know. In order to overcome the challenges ahead, we need all generations to unite for a brighter future. 

Each generation of women and transgender people brings its own wisdom and perspective, and this is uniquely true for those of us who focus on sustainability and the intersections of climate, equity, health, and economy. Each generation has something valuable to share, and we all seek opportunities to learn from others. In our panel discussion, we’ll ask our guests to share their tools for remaining steadfast in their work, strengthening and supporting others, and solutions for healing people and the environment.

This Year’s Event Experience 

Our goal is always to feed your heart and soul at the Women+ in Green breakfast, and this year is no different. This year’s breakfast will be hosted online on the Gather.Town app, which will simulate an in-person event experience. Picture all the things you might do at an in-person Women+ in Green breakfast – stop to chat with a friend, visit a sponsor or partner table to learn more, join the crowd for the keynote address and panel discussion – these are all things you can do on Gather.Town!  

Additionally, we’re planning a special in-person pick-up for guests prior to the event which will include a printed program, gift card for fresh local treats on the morning of the event, and your own flower crown kit or boutonniere kit.  (we can’t immerse you in nature at this year’s breakfast, but we can, so why not bring a little of it to our screens where everyone can enjoy it together). 

Stay tuned for more information about this year’s keynote speaker and panelists!
