WELA has recently embarked on an expanded mission to empower, support, fund and diversify women’s leadership for our environment and climate action, to transform Australia’s response to these crises. Empower: Increasing numbers of women from diverse backgrounds and sectors are empowered in their leadership for our environment through our Leadership Development Programs.
Support: Our growing support network will transform the ability of women nationally to connect, support and empower one another in their leadership for our environment and climate action.
Fund: The WELA Giving Circle will directly fund women-led advocacy projects for our environment, and connect members with a thriving community for change.
Diversify: We’re creating an inclusive and diverse movement of women leaders, actively supporting women from diverse backgrounds, locations and sectors. In July 2020 we hired an experienced Strategic Director to lead our expansion, and build the team needed to deliver our mission. Now, we’re seeking to capitalise on our early momentum and invest in additional capacity to bring these workstreams to fruition.
