Look Who's Talking-- and Doing Something--- about Eco-Responsibility

Guest Author

It's March 15th and we have another 2 weeks of activites for Women's History Month 2007 across Sun!

This week, Sun's women in the bay area put together a panel focused on Eco-Responsibility featuring:

  • Marla Cone,  Sr.
    Writer-Environmental Topics, Los Angeles Times & Author, Silent Snow, The Slow Poisoning of the Arctic
  • Marcy Scott Lynn, Program
    Manager, Corporate Social Responsibility & Blogger, Sun
  • Lori Duvall, Program Manager,
    Eco Responsibility, Sun
  • Ann Bamesberger, VP, Open
    Work Services Group, Sun 

The presentation provided by these speakers was fascinating -- especially interesting were the stats on women and Corporate Social Responsibility.

I learned (but was not surprised!) that among other things, women are more likely than men to:

  • investigate a company's environmental reputation before making a purchase (National Assoc. of Women Business Owners)
  • invest in companies screened for different criteria including environmental practices (among key issues) (Yankelovich Partners)

All of the women on this panel are not just giving lip-service to the topic of Eco-Responsonsibility, they are actually doing something about it.  

They are sharing information, bringing change to their corporate environments and really making a difference.

These are the women who make a difference in our world. 

These are the women we will recognize as part of Women's History in the future! 

 Women like Marla, Marcy, Lori and Ann  are the ones whom we celebrate this month!

BTW -  Did you know that March 15th is Virtual Women's Day?
I didn't either until I received an email a few days ago from the Women's eCommerce Assoc. Int'l  (WECAI)

Check out the Virtual Women's Day site for online gatherings taking place during Women's History Month.
