Women and Climate

Save the date for March 7, 2024, because International Women Rights’ Day will be BOLD on We Don't Have Time!

The Women and Climate community will be hosting BOLD, a global virtual event aimed at addressing and discussing bold topics:

  • Women-centric leadership: what our world would be like if women led governments, media, corporations, finance and VC, energy transition, and education
  • Population
  • Degrowth movement
  • And more including biodiversity, equity and justice, women’s health 

In this 1.5 hour session, you will hear from experts on BOLD topics through a mix of engaging formats including panels, interviews, hot-takes, and start-up pitches.

Speakers:

  • Sherri Goodman, Secretary General, International Military Council on Climate & Security

Women, Climate, and Boards

The intersection of women, climate, and boards is one to be explored. Boards play a critical role in governing corporations. How can we get more women on boards and how can we help women thrive? What is the climate agenda on boards and how can we leverage boards to prioritize climate?

Women at COP Negotiations
