Taking Care of Business
By Joel Makower, Chairman & Executive Editor
This past Saturday was International Women's Day, a celebration of the power, passion and persistance of that half of our species. At GreenBiz, we like to think we celebrate women all year long — not just with our longstanding series, How She Leads, but through the writing, speaking and spotlighting we do in our daily news, events, research and more. We're pleased to feature several examples below (none of which were deliberately timed to the annual event).
