Every woman makes decisions about her career, her ambitions and her family. As five women who have shared their learnings, successes and failures, we know one thing for sure – there’s a lot we can learn from each other.

We want to take time out to talk about women and changing the world. Not about politics, but about personal lives and choices.

That’s why we organised She Is Sustainable: London in February 2016, a two-day gathering for women working in sustainability, allowing women to share their stories and take part in discussion sessions on all aspects of women’s work and life.

We are currently planning She Is Sustainable: Lancaster and She Is Sustainable: Cambridge, both in July 2016, to bring more women together.

Who’s behind She Is Sustainable?

    This initiative looks fantastic! Sadly I won’t be able to attend as I’ll be in Asia, but I’d like to wish you every success with it and I hope to attend another of your events in the future. Thank you!
