Description

Interested in joining the Seattle EcoWomen Board?


At EcoWomen, our mission is to inspire and empower women to become leaders for the environmental community through educational and professional development opportunities.


EcoWomen chapters are volunteer organizations, consisting of at least 3 women, that bring EcoWomen together at the local level. Chapters organize events for women—like you!—such as skill-building workshops, volunteer projects and outdoor activities. They provide professional networking and personal growth opportunities to give you the skills, resources, and connections to advance your career and help you make a difference. Chapters maintain a close relationship with the National Board of Directors to uphold the vision, mission, and core values of EcoWomen.


Vision

A community of women inspiring each other to create a healthy and equitable society.


Values

EcoWomen is committed to creating a just and equal world by empowering women to be leaders in their professions and stewards of the environment. We value meaningful connections within a diverse and inclusive community to cultivate a more respectful and nurturing society. and believe in exhibiting excellence in all that we do.


Goals for 2018

The goal for 2018 is to re-establish the Seattle Chapter and engage more women with Seattle EcoWomen. In the past, Seattle EcoWomen has done a mix of informal happy hours and more structured events like volunteer days and mentor dinners.
