Women in the Environment had an amazing day at Embassy Suites in Denton as we learned about their LEED Certification and sustainability practices at the hotel and convention center. Complete with lunch at Houligan’s and a tour of the facility, we learned so much together and had a great time.

Thank you Embassy for hosting us!
