Green & Healthy Maine HOMES magazine presents Home + Energy Chats, a webinar series for homeowners, those in the market, and anyone interested in green and healthy home improvements. With topics ranging from the Value of Green Home Improvements to Permaculture 101, Historic Home Performance to the Climate Benefits of Local Wood Building Materials, you won’t want to miss these insightful conversations between Maine’s top experts in their field.

Episode 3 features Women in Green Building. Women have traditionally held a smaller percentage of jobs in the building sector than men. But that is changing and no place more so than here in the great state of Maine. Maine’s green building community is home to many female architects, builders, engineers, designers and more. They have gained recognition throughout the region and beyond for their expertise and contributions to the field. What is it like to be a woman in today’s high-performance building community? What tips and lessons learned do these women have to share? Join us for a conversation with:
