Environmental professionals hold a unique span of knowledge that is well tailored to positively contribute to the field of sustainability. While environmental factors are just one aspect of sustainability, they are a key aspect. An increased pressure from investors and consumers on organizations to more seriously approach sustainability and environmental efforts has presented a great opportunity for environmental professionals to utilize their skills in this growing field.
Further, in recent years, an even greater level of interest from investors has been evolving, leading to the emergence of Sustainable, Responsible, Impact Investing (SRI). SRI investing, which places importance on environmental responsibility, among other sustainable interests, is a strong driver for organizations, large and small, to embrace sustainability. However, those interested in pursuing a sustainable business may not have the tools to do so, and this is where those with environmental expertise can help.
This featured speaker/networking program, sponsored by the EBC Young Environmental Professionals Committee, will feature Sean Fair, CRPC, AAMS, an SRI Investment Advisor and Managing Principle of Waymark Wealth Management LLC. He will discuss his own background in the fields of science and mathematics, and how they lead him to SRI investing.
Other items discussed will include a brief overview of SRI investing; its growing importance to consumers, and organizations; and finally where SRI investing fits into the larger picture, including the environmental professional’s potential role in industry, as well as the individual’s role related to other choices made to shape our environment/world.

#NationWISE is a multi-city round table that looks to address how to help women enter and grow in each local market. On February 23rd, 2016 Women in Solar Energy (WISE) will hold #NationWISE events in 15 cities around the country to facilitate local conversation and feature women employed in aspects of the market unique to each city.
Why Hold It?
The solar market is BIG. According to SEIA, 21 states have installed over 100MW of solar in the US! But it’s also diverse: depending on where you live you may be more likely employed in utility scale projects, mom and pop shops, YieldCos, policy development, or residential sales (and that’s just the tip of the iceberg).
A diverse industry means diverse job opportunities that should include more diversity across in the industry.
What Will Happen?
#NationWISE events are where industry professionals - men AND women - gather to brainstorm policies and programs that promote women and diversity in mature, developing, and frontier markets. At #NationWISE events, attendees can learn about WISE initiatives and programs that are supporting women and diversity today and weigh in on where WISE should focus and/or partner in initiatives that matter to their most important constituents- you!
