"Attending SSCC2015 was truly an enlightening experience. As a recent graduate, hearing the challenges and strategies in each workshop gave me new information that influenced what role I hope to take on in the sustainability field. The best part was networking with such a diverse range of sustainability professionals, which actually led to an interview and my first big job offer!" -Debbie Namugayi, SSCC 2015 Student Scholarship Recipient.
