WITI New York City Regional Network
Green IT: Separating Myth from Reality

Wednesday, July 16, 2008
6 pm - 8:30 pm

Just about every major global corporation has grown a ‘green IT conscious’, and now rides on the preverbal sustainability bandwagon – publicizing various initiatives and committing to do their part to save the planet. But, what does it truly mean to have an environmentally sound operations policy or an enforceable sustainability practice in the workplace? How can you tell if a corporation is being ecologically friendly to the planet, or just to shareholders?

Join Atefeh (Atti) Riazi, CIO of Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide, as she discusses how to separate the myth from the reality across the Green IT landscape, and what you can do to help implement effective policy or changes in your own office and home.
