The attendance numbers were amazing. Members of the NYC Brownfield Partnership (NYCBP) and Brownfield Coalition of the Northeast (BCONE) were there! Can you pick them out of the photo?
The brainstorming session produced this action plan: many of the topics will sound familiar to attendees of the Women in Environmental Professions sessions held by BCONE, NYCBP, SWEP and LSRPA.
- Get to the microphone;
- Get on Boards;
- Promote each other;
- Send up flares and ask for help;
- Stay focused;
- Be the community voice;
- Value women;
- Youth to rise up;
- Get the most out of formal professional organizations: write articles; post on social media; mentor; join the leadership.
Our next Women in Environmental Professions virtual event is being held on November 1, 2022. Join us.
