Women in Sustainability: Moving from Beginner to Badass Some positive news: Recent GreenBiz research finds the number of women in sustainability leadership positions has grown dramatically over the past decade — today, 58 percent of sustainability executives in large companies are female, as are 54 percent in smaller firms. Participation rates aren’t the only change: Pay gaps between genders have narrowed. But there are still plenty of systemic challenges to navigate — from breaking the glass ceiling into the C-suite to proactively addressing the lack of ethnic diversity on sustainability teams. What does it take to succeed as a woman in corporate sustainability? This intimate conversation  will offer insights about a range of topics such as how to lead compassionately in a time of crisis, how to navigate systemic corporate obstacles such as pay equity and lack of diversity within management, and how to develop effective mentoring networks for women and people of color.
