In honor of Women's History Month, DHPE Policy Training Director, Doreleena Sammons-Posey participated in the Invitational White House Briefing Series: Women and the Environment Summit hosted by the Obama Administration and Federal Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) Administrator Lisa P. Jackson at the White House on March 26, 2012. EPA Administrator Jackson was the former Commissioner for the Department of Environmental Protection for the State of New Jersey. She was joined by Senior Advisor to the President, Valarie Jarrett; Tina Chen, Chief of Staff to the First Lady; Heather Zichal, the Deputy Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change; and a host of others. Invited participants were from all sectors including nonprofits, corporate, and government.

Action Workshops were held after the presentations to solicit input on the public's top areas of concern for the next five years as it relates to the environment. This event was streamed live and the EPA will publish a EPA web page that will include the summaries from the breakout sessions, information from the commitment cards, photographs and follow-up activities.
