Continuing the conversation…

In our efforts to continue the conversation and to facilitate a network of Women+ in Green, GBA will be hosting numerous events throughout the year, including:

Women+ in Green Book Club | Multiple Dates TBD:

Green Building Alliance has curated a collection of literature ranging in topic from women empowerment to environmental/sustainability issues. We’ll host facilitated discussions in small groups to talk about how topics from the book can be applied professionally.


Women+ in Green Mentor Mixers | Multiple Dates:

Green Building Alliance is opening up our office for a series of networking events to provide an opportunity to build relationships among Pittsburgh’s most influential women in sustainability.  Join us for an evening of inspiration where we’ll talk about challenges we face as both sustainability professionals and as women in male-dominated spaces.


Women+ in Green Happy Hours | Multiple Dates TBD:

Join the Women+ in Green community for a series of happy hours around town! These casual happy hours will be hosted by women-owned businesses to continue this important conversation.  We’ll visit inspiring office spaces of Women+ in Green and celebrate our fellow sisters in sustainability!


Women+ in Green Dinner Discussions | Multiple Dates TBD:

Hosted by our very own Women+ in Green, these dinners will facilitate intimate conversations as volunteers open up their homes around town. These casual, intimate pot-luck dinners will provide space for Women+ in Green to have their own dialogue around a culture of courage.
