For the third year in a row, Kristen von Hoffmann, Founder and Chair of Greenfox Schools, was invited to speak at the Women in Leadership Conference held at Yale Law School, hosted by the Yale Women’s Leadership Initiative (YWLI). The conference was held on Saturday, November 12th, 2011. Kristen was on the panel entitled “Women in Social Entrepreneurship,” speaking alongside Jennifer Galvin, Founder and Producer of Reelblue, LLC, and Ruth DeGolia, Co-founder and Executive Director of Mercado Global. The panel was presented to women’s leadership attendees, students, and business professionals. Kristen, Jennifer, and Ruth answered questions about women’s leadership in business, strategies for revenue growth, and tenets of social responsibility.
When asked about her values, Kristen said, “We rise by lifting others, and that applies to the impact we have on a widespread basis, and that applies to the way we treat each other on a daily basis. Treating people well is important.”
The fall has been a productive one for Greenfox Schools. We have been partnering with many schools to bring the Greenfox5 curriculum model into after-school programs and classrooms, teaching youth about Products, Food, Energy, Waste, and Greenspace (Greenfox5).
Greenfox Staff has been teaching students about the science behind sustainability measures, and students have been working on hands-on and creative projects incorporating elements of science, technology, engineering, and math in the Greenfox5 curriculum, and empowering students to make environmental sustainability changes in their own schools.
