March 6th: Getting the Frame Right - What Comes Next For Women Leading Sustainability?
We're delighted to partner with WNSF to have a conversation on women and sustainability. KoAnn Vikoren Skryniarz, CEO/Founder of Sustainable Brands will join us for the evening to explore with us concrete things we can do to help shift our systems toward those that support a healthy and flourishing future. This stems from KoAnn’s passion for creating frames that can serve to help generate the kind of unifying traction that can propel our movement forward as fast as possible. There is fear that this frame may cause us all — men and women — to miss at least one bigger point: that the notion of “success” as we currently think of it may in fact be outmoded, and what we really need to be doing here is changing the game. Check out KoAnn’s blog post, Getting the Frame Right, to learn more about this topic. See you at Adobe in Fremont on March 6!
March 27th: Snowpack Forum
