Have you struggled to get buy-in from your executive for renewables?

Or perhaps engage the team on sustainable procurement?

Getting your team on board is key to unlocking change.

CitySwitch has partnered with WorkforClimate to support business signatories get your team on board.

WorkforClimate is a not-for-profit organisation that’s focused on climate action at work. It aims to equip employees with the knowledge and skills they need to drive the climate transformation of their organisations.

This event is suitable for sustainability officers, green teams, sustainability champions or simply those looking to learn proven strategies to get your team on board with climate action.

Expect an action-oriented workshop and networking event gathering Sydney-based CitySwitch members. This workshop will be led by Laure Legros, Head of Experience, WorkforClimate.

The agenda includes;

  • Main challenges in engaging teams
  • A 3 step guide to get teams on board
  • The do’s and don’ts of engaging employees

We’ll also hear signatory, Mott MacDonald, share their experience establishing a successful carbon reduction internal working group.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Presenter Bio:

Laure Legros

Laure is the Head of Experience at non-profit WorkforClimate, which helps climate-concerned professionals influence the climate agenda of their organisations.

Laure spent the first decade of her career working in large tech and digital companies, including Adobe and Google. In 2020, she decided to leave the industry and work on climate, because she felt like the urgency and magnitude of the challenge was too big to work on anything else. Becoming a parent to a now 4 year old little boy also accelerated her journey into this work.

In addition to her work with WorkforClimate, Laure is the Australian co-lead for Climate Fresk, a non-profit on a mission to educate people about climate science fundamentals through a serious game.

Laure has a deep love for the outdoors and loves connecting with nature through sports - both on land and in the oceans.
