    Track 4: Community Engagement and Environmental Justice
    As brownfield practitioners, women initiate and lead projects and provide technical assistance to communities tackling environmental, public health and economic challenges as they intersect with social issues. In doing this, brownfield practitioners created new markets in contaminated lands. As we help communities create a new vision and restore neglected areas, women play many critical roles as communicators, collaborators, champions for sustainable practices and reinvigorated areas that more practically reflect community needs. This roundtable celebrates our accomplishments as brownfield practitioners across a range of disciplines, touches on the challenges we faced and experiences that got us here today. Discussions will consider women as champions of sustainability, resilience and a fair economic future. Join us as we forge a future with opportunities for more representative and equitable leadership in brownfield practice, policy, revitalization projects and technical innovations.
