About this event
Women have been natural impact creators from the beginning of time. They should play a front and centre role in the climate change space and take up leadership roles in the growing industry of ESG investment and Refi. While some have, many more are still searching for the right opening or the pathway to the top.
Join us for the sharing and advice from the OGs of the traditional ESG and the Web3 world online and/or IRL!
