Session Details

Our tracks and sessions are by design and by the nature of the subjects interrelated and overlapping. To attain sustainability thinking in an organization, the changes must occur at the program, portfolio, and enterprise level. So naturally, some of these sessions apply to both Tracks.

You will receive Zoom Room Details Via Email a Week Before the Event. Note: Participants can mix and match tracks and workshops. You earn 8 PDU’s for each day.
