The New England Women in the Energy and the Environment (NEWIEE) was founded in Boston in 2008 by a group of accomplished women in the sector. One of those founding members is Concentric’s own Senior Project Manager, Julie Lieberman. According to Ms. Lieberman, NEWIEE was formed to harness the passion, intelligence, and leadership of women in New England’s energy and environment sectors to support women employed in those sectors as well as encourage and support them entering the field. The organization fosters a dynamic and enthusiastic environment that focuses on networking, sharing of expertise and information, and mentoring. Ms. Lieberman values her membership with NEWIEE because it provides resources to female professionals, as well as an opportunity to meet, develop relationships and learn from some of New England’s foremost female energy professionals. In an overwhelmingly male field, support from accomplished female professionals provides inspiration and a visible path forward as women seek to advance to senior leadership roles in their careers. NEWIEE’s many events have provided Ms. Lieberman countless opportunities to network with other local energy professionals, as well as gain valuable industry insight.
On Tuesday, May 1st from 6:00pm-9:00pm at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel, NEWIEE will be recognizing and celebrating the accomplishments of women leaders in the fields of energy and environment. Congratulations to all the women receiving awards for their commitment to the sector!
