Environmental Sustainability, Leadership and a New Path Forward

March 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Healthy Leadership and a Sustainable World

Join GW4W for a special Heart To Heart presentation focused on Environmental Sustainability, Leadership, and a New Path Forward.

About this Event

Many challenges over the last year have underscored the need to focus more actively on creating a sustainable world at work and in our communities. Join us for a thought-provoking discussion on how businesses, researchers and NGO’s can intentionally work together to address the burning platforms facing us and the next generation.

This design thinking approach requires leadership that comes from a place of health, caring and innovation. You’ll hear about specific initiatives that have made steps forward, some of the data that connects human sustainability to environmental sustainability and receive ideas and actions you can implement in your organization and in your daily life.

On March 16th at 12:00 pm EDT we invite you to use your voice and join the conversation. Share what you are doing for sustainability and be a part of doing “more good together.”

Register today.
