Empowering women in the Circular Economy
The rise of women in leadership and entrepreneurial roles demonstrates that business success can go hand-in-hand with sustainability. It requires a rebalancing between financial and other forms of capital (e.g. social, natural, knowledge) and a wider framing of what constitutes success.
Studies have shown that women are more willing to alter their behaviour for the sake of the environment and the well-being of their families and wider communities and they are taking these views into the boardroom.
With global momentum driving a transition to a Circular Economy, the empowerment of women will be a critical factor in the evolution to a low-carbon, inclusive and equitable economy.
Empowering women in the Circular Economy will be hosted by Annie Jiang and Melissa Histon, and presented by Debbie O’Byrne, Circular Economy Lead at the Lake Macquarie Council then it will be followed by a Q & A session.
