Mission: To foster a strong community of women and enhance stewardship of the environment through networking and career development.
Vision: A healthy environment and a sustainable world.
Values: A collaborative balance between the environment, economy and equity, and a greater engagement of the community at large on environmental issues.
The Women's Environmental Network (WEN) of the has been in existence since the early 1990s and was incorporated as a 501(c)3 in 1997. The primary function of the organization is to provide education and networking for professional women in the environmental field in the Bay Area, as well as to produce a regular newsletter. WEN's 2,000+ community members use each other as resources for information and learning about environmental fields, best practices, and career development. Just as the definition of the word “environmental” is fairly broad, the WEN membership reflects a wide range of interests and professions.
Our volunteer board (we have no staff) is now looking beyond maintenance of our regular networking and education functions to seek new ways to expand member services and further strengthen our community ties. We are also looking for volunteers who have expertise in the technical side of web development. If you have any interest in these areas, please let us know by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
community works for a healthy and sustainable environment and we seek to
educate and engage the greater community about these issues. We hope
you'll join us in our mission!
