Women In Green Forum Attracts Global Leaders To Santa Monica

The Sheraton Delfina in
Santa Monica, California is selected to be the 2nd Annual Women in
Green Forum venue.

 

It has just been announced that
the 2nd annual Women in Green Forum will be held on August 30th
and 31st at the Sheraton Delfina, a 4-star luxury hotel in Santa
Monica, California. The Forum promises to showcase women who have made an impact
on the environmental industry, companies with innovative strategies for
sustainability, and the newest green products and services.

 


The 2010
Women in Green Forum
marked the Forum’s inaugural year and featured speakers
from Fortune 500 companies, top government posts, leading academic institutions,
and successful small businesses who spoke on topics ranging from Green Building
to Eco Fashion. Notable Forum speakers included California State Senator Fran
Pavley, actress and activist Gloria Rueben, General Motors’ Director of Global
Energy Systems & Infrastructure Comm. Britta K. Gross, and Wal-Mart’s Director
of Store Operations & Sustainability Vonda Lockwood. In addition to
presentations from these inspiring female leaders, the Forum invited attendees
to an exhibition of the latest green products and services. The first annual
Women In Green Forum successfully brought together over 400 leaders in
sustainability, emerging as the nation’s largest conference for women in
environmental careers. 

 

 

 

While the 2011 Women in Green
Forum will touch on many similar topics as the the 2010 Forum, this year‘s
change of venue will offer attendees a more intimate setting, with meetings held
steps from the beach in a penthouse ballroom overlooking both the ocean and the
mountains. Building on the success of 2010, it will offer skill-building
sessions and clean vehicle test-drives in addition to traditional panels and
keynote sessions.

 

In line with the Forum’s theme,
the Sheraton Delfina was chosen as the 2011 venue because of its ability to
combine luxury with sustainability. The hotel’s “Second Nature” initiative
promotes environmentally friendly practices and made it Santa Monica’s first
Green-Certified luxury hotel by the Green Business Certification Program. The
Delfina received this honor due to its commendable efforts to reduce its carbon
footprint and environmental impact. Among its greening initiatives, the Sheraton
Delfina boasts perks for guests driving hybrid vehicles or traveling on public
transportation and promotes the use of bicycles for daily outings.

 

“We are thrilled to be able to hold the Forum at a
location that is accessible by public transportation and is demonstrating its
dedication to reducing its environmental impact,” says Jaime Nack, President of
TSI and Director of the Women in Green Forum. “This venue will provide the right
atmosphere to encourage networking and relationship building among attendees.”

 

The Women in Green Forum is
produced by Three Squares Inc. (TSI), a nationally recognized firm that
specializes in environmental business consulting and event production. Some of
TSI’s recent projects include the greening of the Inception movie premier
and the Comedy Central Rally to Restore Sanity. Working to promote women
in the environmental arena, TSI operates under the leadership of President Jaime
Nack, who recently received a federal appointment to serve a three-year term on
the National Women's Business Council and was named a 2011 Young Global Leader
by the World Economic Forum.
