Truth and Transparency Comes from Within
Track: Truth + Transparency

The Living Building Challenge community is a tough arena to play in. All involved are pushed, pulled, and stretched to be creative, innovative, fresh and practical. And then there is – life. Are we required to balance or integrate our family, career, faith, health, and sanity with our work? This session speaks to the need for community to not only celebrate our successes… but also share our deep struggles, especially for those considered taboo in our society. We believe the truth and transparency of the health and wellness of our community is vital to the success of our industry.
