The Engineering Leadership Council: Professionals Implementing Social Impact Together
BY PAMELA ROGALSKI
@ PECHAKUCHA URBAN INNOVATION MONTH
ON APR 01, 2014
As Pamela Rogalski makes quite clear, scaling the implementation of social impact in construction projects in urban environments is new. People want to “do the right thing”, but all industry professionals have encountered constraints that prevent us from doing what we know we ought to do (and we've all ranted about it over a beer at the end of the day). For engineers, however, the difference is that what we implement at scale has the potential to impact an entire community. To make the shift from intention to reality, whole engineering leaders are building momentum through vertical industry partnerships and triple bottom line business cases.
