SUMMARY

Shades of Green is an event put on by the School of Business and Office of Sustainability to bring businesses to campus to talk about sustainable practices and career opportunities in this field.



IMPACT

Students in the business school are opened up to the field of sustainability, which might ignite a passion in them or give them networking connections to a career path they were already considering. 



PROCEDURE

Shades of Green has a board made up of professors from the business school, members of the Office of Sustainability, and students. They plan the events and  contact business to invite them to campus to talk about their sustainable initiatives. 



MISTAKES & LESSONS LEARNED

Advertising for the events needs to happen sooner so that more students are aware of the great opportunities being brought to campus. 



FUTURE PLANS

Invite big name companies to drum up interest and bring in more students. Continue advertising and expand it to a school wide program that students of all majors look forward to for networking opportunities.
