The 4th Annual Women In Green Forum conference series will be held Sept. 25th at the U.S. Green Building Council headquarters in Washington, D.C.

"USGBC, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, has always and continues to recognize women leaders and the contributions they have made to the growing green building industry. As fellow pioneers in the green movement, USGBC is happy to join the Women in Green Forum in hosting their first East Coast conference taking place at our LEED Platinum office," said Kimberly Lewis, senior vice president of conferences and events for USGBC. "We look forward to celebrating the journey of women in this movement and acknowledging their amazing achievements throughout the forum."

The Women In Green Forum focuses on highlighting and promoting women’s leadership across the environmental arena.  Each year, the forum aims to create a venue for sustainability professionals to develop the skills necessary for success and engage in networking opportunities that allow attendees to support each other in their careers

The 2013 conference theme is “Nexus of Sustainability and Innovation.” The forum agenda will flow through a series of spotlight presentations, panel sessions, and skills building workshops, providing attendees with the most up-to-date information and innovations in the environmental arena.
