    On May 11, 2023, NJSWEP held the NJDEP Regulatory Update event in-person at the Department of Environmental Protection Headquarters in Trenton. As in years past, the Brownfields Coalition of the Northeast (BCONE) co-hosted the event.

    The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) implements environmental regulations and policies for the State, which frequently evolve as priorities change. This one-day workshop allowed for our members to be updated on the NJDEP’s priorities and plans. In addition, presentations included information on the status of existing programs, updates, stakeholder engagement and proposed legislative changes that are key for successful implementation. NJDEP Assistant Commissioners and their designees from programs including Environmental Justice, Climate Resilience, Environmental Management, Water Resources, Site Remediation, Compliance and Enforcement, and Sustainability and Green Energy presented on current and emerging topics. Our members had the opportunity to ask questions directly to NJDEP staff and network with colleagues. A copy of the slide deck was emailed to all registrants.

    Our members represent a diverse group of environmental professionals, and it is vital for us to keep them connected to the regulators and policy makers. NJSWEP and BCONE would like to thank all the presenters and organizers for their time and continued service to our great State!

    Over 50 women and men jumped on-line on Tuesday, February 28, 2023 from 4:00 - 5:30pm to hear an informative panel on Women Environmental Business Owners.  The informal panel was moderated by Gina Daniel of Ramboll (and NJSWEP)  and included panelists from the environmental consulting world:   Lawra J. Dodge, Excel Environmental Resources, Inc.; Laura Brinkerhoff, WHB (and former owner of Brinkerhoff Environmental Services); and Maria Coler, Hydrotechnology Consultants, Inc. (and member of BCONE’s Board); from the legal world: Helen Mauch and Karen Mintzer, Mintzer Mauch PLLC (and committee chairs for the NYCBP Redevelopment Roundtable series); and the drilling world: Christine Lamprecht, Land, Air, Water Environmental Services, Inc.

    These women business owners, all from the greater NY Metro area, shared their insights on their previous experiences and why they decided to go out on their own; what the W/MBE certification does for their business prospects; what it is like to be the boss; and the decision-making process about when it is time to sell, why, and how. The interaction among the panelists is always informative, as is the interaction with the attendees and the panelists, and among the attendees in the chat.  Attendees receive book recommendations (The Confidence Code); advice on going into specialized services that are in high demand, such as ecological risk assessment; great quotes to ponder now and in the future such as “If you aren’t failing, you aren’t trying new things;”  the importance of a business plan and when to consider hiring a business coach; and more.  There was a terrific discussion of whether large firms or small firms are better training grounds for professionals who want to go out on their own.

    There are two more sessions planned for the 2023 series:  Tuesday, July 18, 2023  and  Tuesday, November 14, 2023, both at  4 to 5:30 pm.  The specific subjects and panelists for each session haven’t been selected yet, so feel free to contact nycbpinfo@gmail.com with suggested topics and panelists.  Volunteer to be a panelist!  The topic for the February 28 event was suggested by a 2022 series attendee, so know that BCONE, LSRPA, NJSWEP, and NYCBP do take suggestions seriously.

    by Lina Rivetti, NJDEP Part-Time Employee

    How did you spend your afternoon on Tuesday, March 29, 2022? Were you one of over 60 women environmental professionals and a handful of male allies who joined us virtually for the inaugural “Women in Environmental Professions” Event put on collaboratively by the NYC Brownfield Partnership (NYCBP), the NJ Chapter of the Society of Women Environmental Professionals (NJSWEP), the NJ Licensed Site Remediation Professionals Association (LSRPA), and the Brownfield Coalition of the Northeast (BCONE)? Eighty-eight percent of attendees were members of at least one of the sponsoring organizations, and members of the audience joined us enthusiastically for an interactive and uplifting session. 


    This program was a success because of its moderator and wonderful speakers. Lina Rivetti, a student at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and recipient of an NJSWEP scholarship was masterful as a moderator. Superstar panelists Schenine Mitchell of USEPA Region 2; Ezgi Karayel, owner of vEKtor Consultants and President of the NYCBP; Candace Baker of Langan Engineers and VP of the LSRPA; and Linda Shaw, Esq., owner of Knauf Shaw and President of the Environmental Section of the NYS Bar discussed inherent qualities of all strong leaders, self-advocacy as women in the workforce, shifting career trajectories, obtaining a work-life balance, differences between the public and private sector, the importance of mentorship and marketing, as well as inspirational advice for current and future women aspiring to achieve more prominent roles in the environmental industry.

    A few quotes from the speakers that really resonated with the audience include:

    • “You are more valuable than you think;”
    • “When it is meant to be yours, it will be yours,“ along with “ask for what you want” and “show up, but also speak up;” and
    • “Powerful women empower women!”

    We weren’t aware that this would be the “inaugural event” until it was clear that the 90-minute session was so energizing and informative that all attendees asked for it to be a quarterly event! High praise. Some of the topics we look to explore further while keeping up the conversation in upcoming virtual gatherings are:

    1. How to handle inappropriate behavior or harassment on job sites. 
    2. What can we do as a group to specifically encourage and recruit more girls/women of color to join environmental professions?
    3. How to effectively and respectfully set boundaries

    For the 88% of attendees who are members of at least one of the sponsoring organizations, look for eblasts and web posting for the date, time, and registration information for the next session. Please encourage others to join the conversation.

    Many thanks to event sponsors Athenica Environmental Services; vEKtor Consultants; Knauf Shaw; HydroTech Environmental; Liberty Environmental, Inc; and Gallagher Bassett Technical Services. They were joined by the highest level sponsors of both the NYCBP and BCONE

    Long-time collaborators -- AEG-NYP, AHMP-NJ, BCONE, LSRPA and NJSWEP -- were back together at the summer networking event, watching the Trenton Thunder vs. Syracuse Mets game of July 22, 2021, and catching up after 16 months of all virtual meetings and networking events. Seventy-five people from the NJ-NY-PA region, and from all sectors of the remediation and redevelopment worlds were there, spending a perfect summer night enjoying baseball, beverages, fireworks and festivity. 

    Thanks to the event sponsors: AWT, Mount Group, and SGS. Thanks also to the raffle sponsor, Hill Environmental/SET. The winner of the random drawing, John Iannotti, with the full agreement of sponsor Greg Hill, donated the cash prize to fund scholarships for the next generation of remediation professionals.
