As we wrap up Women's History Month, we turn to the future, and look at the role of women in the Green Movement. One of the leading experts in the field is Boston based Crystal Johnson, founder and principal of ISES, Integrative Sustainability & Environmental Solutions. We'll ask Crystal to give definition to all things "green" and help us to understand the economy and political implications of environmental sustainability in a throw away world.
Just what happens to all of those computers, once they're no longer in use? What landfill...or developing country are they shipped off to? And what about all the plastic bags that don't make it to the recycle bin? What role to communities of color play in the Green Movement?
And most importantly, what can ONE person to to push the Green Movement forward?
We'll also talk to Crystal about her upcoming 3rd Annual Sustainable Economy Conference (SEC) set for April 30th.

Crystal Johnson Bio
Crystal Johnson launched ISES after almost two decades of educating diverse industries about how to best reduce their impact on the environment.
Her experience in the public and private sectors on both the west and east coasts provides her with a critical understanding of environmental issues. Crystal’s professional journey provides her with over 20 years experience in sustainability management, environmental planning and assessment and compliance review. She has experience in scoping, preparing and critique of Environmental Assessments, Environmental Impact Statements/Reports (for NEPA and state environmental regulations), Air Quality Reports, Water Resources Assessments, Climate Change Action Plans and renewable energy feasibility studies.
After graduating from the University of California Berkeley, Crystal passionately pursued a career as an Environmental Specialist...She accepted a position as an Energy Analyst with the City of Berkeley where she wrote innovative environmental policy and created energy retrofit programs for high-end commercial energy users. This opportunity lead to Energy Planner and Environmental Planner positions with Parsons Brinckerhoff Quade & Douglas, an engineering firm, in Hawaii. After many years, she returned home to Boston, MA and served as an Environmental Program Manager for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Aeronautics Commission (MAC) responsible for the environmental habitat of 47 airports. Her reputation with MAC lead to being offered a position at an engineering firm in Boston, AECOM/Frederic R. Harris, Inc., to provide Environmental Planning services. After a couple of years, Crystal relocated to NYC to work at the NYC Department of Environmental Protection's Office of Environmental Planning and Assessment as a Senior Environmental Program Manager responsible for environmental planning of 7 of the 14 NYC water pollution control plants, environmental assessments of large-scale private and public NYC projects and water demand projections for NYC. The beauty of the Hudson Valley area in Upstate NY lured her to consult in Hudson, NY as a Senior Environmental Planner and Green Marketing Director. She returned home to Massachusetts in 2009.
