Climate At Work: Building Impactful Workplace Sustainability Communities

June 13, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

Join us for an extraordinary event as we bring together the visionaries behind two of the most influential workplace climate communities in the world—Anthropocene at Google and Microsoft’s monumental 10,000-member employee sustainability community. We will delve into the art of building and sustaining grassroots movements within companies, and learn how to ignite change from the ground up.

What you can expect from this session:

We’ll start with introductions to first get to know our host and panelists. From there we’ll ask panelists questions that were submitted before this event and some from our Work on Climate team, followed by 15 minutes of open Q&A from the audience.
