Women+ in Green Coffee Talks Mentoring Series featuring Samantha Hartzman
April 2 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 amFree
Start your morning off with an inspiring Women+ in Green conversation and mentoring opportunity! At this event, attendees will hear from a leader in the green building community and then engage in small group conversations around mentoring and progressing in your sustainability career as a woman or gender minority. GBA’s Women+ in Green network aims to foster a sense of support and connectedness in our often cis-male dominated industries. We look forward to spending the morning with you!
