EMC CWEEL Breakfast in Seattle
CWEEL hosted the Women in Leadership Breakfast at the West Coast Energy Management Congress on Thursday June 21 in Seattle, WA. Keynote speaker Susan Wickwire, Executive Director of the Seattle 2030 District and Washington state native, presented her thoughts on creating successful partnerships between the public and private sectors, while weaving in anecdotes from her life story, prior work for the EPA and state department, and the things that have driven her throughout her public service.
Ms. Wickwire has experienced first-hand the positive benefits to industrial and commercial businesses resulting from well-designed and executed government environmental programs. She assumed leadership of the Seattle 2030 District in 2015 – one of nearly two dozen major cities across the U.S. participating in the 2030 District initiative – which has grown to a membership of more than 150 property owners/managers, community and professional stakeholders, and resource partners. The objectives of the Seattle 2030 District are to develop realistic, measurable, and innovative strategies to assist district property owners, managers, and tenants in meeting aggressive goals for reducing environmental impacts of facility construction and operations.
