The realities of climate change are impacting people around the world. But, due in large part to societal norms, women (in particular, women in the developing world) are being disproportionately impacted by the effects of our changing climate.
In the conversations around what actions need to be taken in response to these challenges, what particular attention needs to be paid to the voices of women?
Join us for an evening in conversation with women leading the response to global climate change, and with those supporting their work:
Dr. Bilqis Hoque — Director of Research for Environment and Population Research Center (EPRC), Bangladesh
Mr. Aditya Pillai — Program Manager for The Asia Foundation, India
Ms. Amanda Ellis — Executive Director, Hawaii and Asia-Pacific, for the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability
Ms. Ulalia Woodside — Executive Director for The Nature Conservancy of Hawai’i
Ms. Jane Sloane — Director of Women’s Empowerment Program for The Asia Foundation
Representatives from Episcopal Relief and Development and The Episcopal Diocese of California will also be in attendance.
Admission is free and light food and drink will be served.
