aimsto helpincrease awareness and information for women looking to enter green jobs.
The Women’s Bureau is an agency charged with protecting the
interests of working women and advocating for their equality and economic security.

bureau created the sustainable career guide to help inform them about opportunities

good for women:

can advance to higher-level responsibilities.

jobs and the green economy. Students of our environmental policy and management programs may find the guide to be a good resource as they work toward their careers. Why Green Is Your Color: A Woman’s Guide to
