WELA has come into being when society and the environment are at a crossroads. It links two pressing issues—gender equity and environmental protection—and is built on the belief that gender equity will not only transform Australia’s political process, boardrooms and communities, it will create a far more effective environment movement.
WELA is lifting female voices to ensure that women’s insights, knowledge, and contributions are fully integrated into the change we need to make to save the planet. Our mission is urgent. We need all hands on deck—women and men.
