Andrea Traber Receives 2018 Women In Sustainability Leadership Award
Integral Group is proud to announce Senior Principal & US West Sustainability + Resilient Design Leader Andréa Traber has been awarded Green Building & Design Magazine’s 2018 Women In Sustainability Leadership Award (WLSA).
The Women in Sustainability Leadership Awards (WSLA) is gb&d’s top annual accolade, recognizing the most powerful women making a difference in the world through sustainability. WSLA is considered to be one of the most prestigious awards in the world of architecture and the built environment and has been received by Hillary Clinton, Bea Perez (Coca-Cola), Angela Foster-Rice (United Airlines), Arielle Bertman (Google), and Jeanne Gang (Studio Gang Architects).
Andréa joined Integral Group in 2013 to lead the Sustainability group and has achieved LEED certifications on over 70 projects. She places a high priority and focuses on developing and mentoring future sustainability leaders and advocating strongly for gender pay equity and advancement in our industry.
“I lead by example and overcome all obstacles I encounter by using my intelligence and experience, my heart, and my ability to be a creative problem solver,” she says. “I have chosen a path of leading internally through a strong mentoring ethic, which causes the change from within the industry and our organization. I continually work with my male and female colleagues on growth within our organization and demonstrate how not to run away from challenging issues.”
The WSLA Awards reception will take place on Tuesday, November 13, 2018, at the USGBC Greenbuild Conference in Chicago. Andréa will also speak at this year’s conference in her session Lessons Learned from Resilient by Design.
