June 2015 - Women in Leadership: How women can achieve leadership roles in the environmental sector

According to the Center for American Progress, women hold almost 52 percent of all professional-level jobs, yet women “lag substantially behind men when it comes to their representation in leadership positions.”

How can we solve tough environmental and social problems if women continue to be underrepresented in leadership positions in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors? How can we change this reality?

Join the Women’s Environmental Network (WEN) and the Bad Ass Women Hub Club for networking, hors d'oeuvres, and an evening discussion with an esteemed panel of women who will share insights and strategies for how you can position yourself for leadership and high-level positions in the environmental and sustainability sectors.

Our esteemed panelists include:

From left:
  • Savanna Ferguson, California Environmental Associates
  • Francesca Vietor, The San Francisco Foundation
  • Lisa Feldman, UC Berkeley College of Natural Resources
Whether you are just breaking into the environmental field or aspire to advance to senior positions, you will leave the evening with new connections and ideas for strengthening your networks, improving your resume, advocating for yourself, and ways you can polish and develop your skills for advancing your career. Together we can help propel more women into leadership and executive positions in the environmental and sustainability fields.

When: Monday June 22nd, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Where: Impact Hub San Francisco, 925 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94103 (map)

Closest BART: Powell Street Station (directions)

Cost: Earlybird: $12 + fees before June 12; Regular admission: $15+ fees after June 12; Free for Hub members and those of the Bad Ass Women’s Club (pre-registration and membership verification at door required)
