The Women’s Environmental Leadership Australia (WELA) program has been running for three eventful full-on years and now for 2019!
In 2019, WELA will undertake a different year: building the WELA community across Australia, supporting gender equity in the environment movement and developing a more sustainable funding model for the following three years of programs for 2020-2022.
We will be supporting WELA alumni connections and building state and regional networks of women environmentalists. These events will of course foster women’s leadership and address gender inequity in our movement.
WELA 2019 will include:
● International Women’s Day: Encouraging WELA women in environmental NGOs to hold events in the workplace to discuss gender equity and women’s leadership issues on and around March 8. Also encouraging women environmentalists to gather for networking and celebration.
● WELA national gathering: A two-day workshop for WELA graduates and friends to share ideas for the future, plan state or regional gatherings and convene networks. Dates to be sorted for July/August.
● State and regional gatherings throughout the land including maybe Adani…
● Helping make WELA fundraising more sustainable for 2020-2022.
The WELA national program will commence again in 2020.
