What Is Women 4 SustainABILITY?
Women 4 SustainABILITY gathers women of all ages 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).
This event is NOT about excluding men, or feeling superior to men, or being oppressed by men. It's about celebrating women for who they are as women, and ESPECIALLY about what they can bring to the dialogue around sustainability. It's about exploring women’s innate individual and collective natures and perspectives, and figuring out how these traits can accelerate our move toward community sustainability.
Past topics have included creativity, women’s voices, food and agriculture, and the human and environmental health impacts of mainstream cosmetics.
Comments and Testimonials
The Women 4 SustainABILITY offerings are well organized, provide substantial content, extend the possibilities of connecting with other self-actualized women, and offer inspiring presentations.
The event was fun, interactive, and very, very interesting. I am looking forward to the next event.
Fresh Outlook Foundation is hands down the most innovative, forward-thinking and inspiring organization I have encountered. Their range of events, from film festivals, business conferences, and these Women 4 SustainABILITY meetings all add incredible value to our understanding and experience of where and how we each fit into the bigger picture. Fresh Outlook Foundation doesn't just put on events, they make things happen through the open and well-organized sharing of conversation, ideas, experiences, and connections, they engage each and every attendee, and encourage each of us that we too can make a difference.
What a delight to come together with a room full of creative women, all focused on creating a wonderful future and injecting enthusiasm and creativity into our daily lives! The topics, small group discussions, giant doodle pads, yummy munchies, and great conversation made this event fun and memorable. I'm definitely interested in attending another event.
