Join Women in Sustainability at one of our upcoming events.
Connect with like-minded individuals at our social and educational events.
Educational events and webinars from leading industry experts include sustainability topics such as recycling, composting, leadership, money, regenerative systems, and more.
We love hosting social events where you can connect with other sustainability-minded individuals such as networking nights, small business showcases, holiday gatherings, dinners, and more.
All events are currently held online due to COVID-19 protocols.
Once it’s safe, events will be held both in-person and online.
In-person events are only in Colorado at this time, but we hope to expand nationally soon.
All are welcome to join!
Starting in the fall of 2021 most events will have a small fee unless you are an official member of Women in Sustainability. All WIS members will be able to access most of our events at no additional cost. If you’re not interested in a paid membership, but you’d like to attend an event, no worries! All events will still be accessible to non-members for a small fee (pricing will vary on an event-by-event basis). We still plan to provide free content to the community throughout the year, so be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page for announcements.
