Event Description

Women in Sustainability: Re-Forging the Status Quo
May 16 | 8:30-10:00am
50 Milk Street, 18th Floor, Hemingway Room - Boston, MA 02109

Gender bias impacts everyone in the twenty-first-century workplace. Women represent 45% of design graduates yet only 17% of firm principals and partners (AIA, NCARB). Join USGBC MA chapter for a presentation and discussion on gender in the workplace and learn how the sustainable design community is propelling market transformation.

Aminah McNulty, co-chair of their Emerging Professionals Committee and member of BSA's Women in Design Committee and Equity Roundtable will lead the conversation.
The discussion will cover pay gaps, leadership pipelines, and design bias and provide action steps to foster equity in your workplace and projects. The presentation will also cover the LEED v4 Social Equity pilot credits and their intersections with gender equity.
