The 10 Most Powerful Women in Sustainability

By 3BL Media

The challenge of sustainability has opened new opportunities in fields long filled by men. Some jobs are completely new; others require new approaches to old tasks. The recipients of the inaugural Women in Sustainability Leadership Award, presented by gb&d magazine, illustrate the importance of diversity in the sustainability field, and should inspire us to infuse more positions with sustainability-related responsibilities.

Revitalized by new goals, these jobs would appeal to millennials and transform workplace cultures that have been resistant to both women and people of color. After all, working toward sustainability across an organization and diversifying its workforce should go hand in hand.
