Women in Green: Stand Up SHEROES!
Women in Green is a worldwide initiative to inspire and empower women working every day to make measurable impact on quality of life through their work and in their communities. It is USGBC’s platform for exclaiming our intentions, celebrating our victories, and facing our challenges. USGBC is committed to a sustainable, prosperous future through LEED, the leading program for green buildings and communities worldwide. Women play an integral part of that future.
Women in Green reminds us that each of us is a person of great influence. In fact, we are all “sheroes” - SHERO: A female hero; a woman that displays strong heroic traits under tremendous pressure and is triumphant over her circumstances. As sheroes, it is so important for each and every one of us to stand up. Stand up for what we believe in, stand up for others, stand up for speaking our minds, and stand up for paving the way for future generations of strong women.
So many of today’s sheroes can be found all around us – in our families, our communities, and our workplaces. Sheroes stand up for a future with clean air, clean water, healthy food, access to quality education, and equitable housing. Together, our work holds so much promise. The building industry has a bright future, due in large part to the role women are playing and will continue to play. That is why Women in Green is gathering our green building sheroes so we can stand up together for a brighter, more inclusive future! Women in Green – what are you standing up for? #WIGstandup2020
