Welcome to WEN, an educational and networking community of professional women who work in the environmental field in the greater
San Francisco Bay Area!

WEN attracts a broad spectrum of women working in the sustainability and environmental fields. We organize events and outings on a monthly basis, including
networking happy hours, career building workshops, book groups, hikes, and other social meet-ups with an emphasis on promoting sustainability. We also publish a monthly newsletter with spotlights on WEN members as well as green employers and organizations around the Bay Area. Thanks for dropping in - we hope to see you at a future event!

Upcoming Events:

August 2016 - Take the Lead, A Transformational Workshop for Women in the Environmental Fields

Instead of focusing on the "what's" and the "should's", let's start by considering what you actually want! Let's have some fun through exploration, cultivation, reconnection, and rejuvenation - and identify those things you desire most in your life. Join Wendy Millet, Co-founder of Gallop Ventures, and Becky Bacon, Certified Life Coach, in a day-long workshop that will encourage you to revisit your dreams, rediscover your values, and reclaim your desires.

Connect with a small group of fellow WEN members while working with horses, setting personal and professional goals, and creating a plan of action to achieve them. Through classroom dream building, intention setting and Equine Assisted Learning activities you will:
  • Learn something new about yourself
  • Uncover old passions and desires that have long been buried
  • Reconnect with your essential self which is your truest self
  • Make new connections with other amazing environmental professionals
  • Create a plan of action for the coming year
  • Identify measurable goals that are in alignment with your values and desires
  • Create actionable steps to keep you on track so you don't get hijacked.
