On Monday, Winning Connections showed support for Women’s Information Network (WIN) by co-hosting an event for young environmental leaders. The event, titled Women Opening Doors for Women (WODW), celebrated WIN’s twenty fifth year by creating an atmosphere reminiscent of their very first meeting—intimate, informal, and issue-focused. Since its inception, WIN has provided a space where women can come together and help each other achieve professional success.
Winning Connections hosted the Environment Network’s program, “‘Getting Green Done’: Women on the Front Lines of Sustainability”. We thank Alison Grass, Senior Researcher for the Water Program, Food & Water, for being a speaker, as well as all the participants. During the dinner, these women discussed how they became involved in the environmental movement, environmental inequities, new and old threats to our earth, and so much more!
In addition to our event, over twenty other dinners were held across the city. Topics ranged from achieving a work-life balance to mindful meditation and making unexpected career moves. We thank WIN and the Environment Network for being engaged leaders and activists, and for their work to create a more sustainable and environmentally just world.
