No Place Like Home: Lardenoit Joins Habitat for Humanity Chicago Effort

Julie Lardenoit, ESD’s Workplace Solutions Practice Leader, does what it takes to give back to those in need.

Homeownership is one of the most dynamic tools a person can use to build a strong and stable future. Homeowners can accumulate wealth through their property, and owning a home is good for the overall economy, according to Forbes.

Hurdles keeping women from homeownership are high. To help combat that, Julie Lardenoit has joined Team Force along with other women industry leaders for Habitat for Humanity Chicago’s Women Build in October. Her team includes representatives from Ecosense, Executive Construction, Force Partners, Lamar Johnson Collaborative, NELSON Worldwide, Ted Moudis Associates, Valerio Dewalt Train Associates, Inc. and Whitney Architects.

“I was looking for a way to honor the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg when the opportunity to join a group of women helping other women presented itself,” Lardenoit notes. Habitat for Humanity Women Build, a week-long event, draws thousands of volunteers to hundreds of sites around the country. Lardenoit is truly engaged with ESD’s mission of Improving Society Through the Built Environment.
