The focus of the October 2013 gathering is ‘creativity.’ We’’ll hear from subject experts as well as from women who are using creative solutions to sustainability challenges in the public, private, nonprofit, and academic sectors. Participants will also be encouraged to identify potential applications for creativity in their personal and professional lives.

Women 4 SustainAbility gathers women of all ages three to four times a year to discuss community sustainability issues from the female perspective. The ’4′ signifies that women from the four sectors (government, business, NGOs, and academia) engage in meaningful and productive dialogue around the four primary pillars of sustainability (social, cultural, environmental, and economic well-being).


And, of course, we’ll serve locally grown and/or organic appetizers and beverages.

The registration fee is $20; you’re responsible for buying your own wine.
