USGBC Emerging Professionals Host Mentorship Mixer

Yesterday the Emerging Professionals Committee of the USGBC held its inaugural Mentorship Mixer. Janie Wright and Mary Melissa Yohn of Tuck-Hinton Architects are members of the USGBC EP committee, along with Samantha Hart, Operating Director & Home Energy Specialist at Go Green Home Services, and Hayley King, Sustainability Coordinator for Balfour Beatty Investments. The event was held at the Tennessee Concrete Association‘s outdoor courtyard, featuring tours and demonstrations of their pervious concrete surfaces, passive house and safe house.

Students from Lipscomb University and Emerging Professionals from Nashville were able to meet and network with seasoned professionals from similar industries. A game of ‘Business Card Bingo’ was used as an ice breaker to encourage conversation and contact information to be exchanged.

The event was made possible with the help of Lipscomb University’s Institute for Sustainable Practice, the Middle Tennessee chapter of the USGBC, and these sponsors who donated their time at booths or sent monetary or raffle donations:

Urban Green Lab
Graybar Nashville
E3 Innovate
Schneider Electric
Hands On Nashville
Lend Lease
Nashville Foodscapes
Clemons Concrete
Sesco Lighting

Thank you to everyone who supported and attended! The evening was a smash hit!
