This year, Greenbuild China will host our inaugural Women in Green Power Breakfast, where we will celebrate the women in our industry who have emerged as great sustainability leaders and their legacy in shaping the green building movement. We will also bring together new leaders in the movement to encourage and inspire, to mentor and motivate.
Female empowerment is an important conversation for women around the world, and especially because women will contribute to the green economy by leading. Andrea Learned, author of the Sustainability and Women series, believes “The way women tend to think is finally being recognized as valuable. Our previous linear thinking will not drive us forward, but continue to drive us down. We are starting to see that the way women lead is better for sustainability.”
