The Women In Green Forum has emerged as the premier conference series highlighting women's impact on the environmental industry.
From the White House to Fortune 500 company leaders, our annual program features the environmental industry's brightest and most innovative speakers. The mission of the Women In Green Forum is to create a venue for sustainability professionals to develop the skills necessary for professional success, to promote women’s leadership across the environmental industry, and to channel our efforts on building a better world where both genders have equal access to and are involved in leadership and decision-making. Offering a blend of interactive sessions, spotlight presentations, and curated tech demos, the Forum provides attendees with a platform to form effective relationships with key players in the environmental industry.
On August 16, 2018, the Forum returns to the Luxe Hotel on Sunset Boulevard. The Luxe offers an indoor/outdoor flow allowing attendees to dive into a variety of workshop sessions, grab a coffee under a tree in the sculpture garden, or browse the Eco Exhibitor booths to learn about companies whose products and services are changing the game in sustainability.
The inaugural Women In Green Forum offered Lifetime Membership to all full-price attendees as a way of saying "thank you" for supporting the launch and as the first step in creating a long-lasting tradition and community of professionals supporting each other in their career endeavors. We have seen that conference ticket prices can often create a barrier to entry for most professionals in the early stages of their careers or those not backed by large companies. Reducing these barriers and encouraging professionals at various stages of their careers to attend, has helped build a strong, diverse Forum community.
