The Network has three goals:
1) To meet and informally network with other women in the environmental field.
2) To encourage and support women pursuing careers related to the environment.
3) To develop as individuals in order to preserve and improve the environment.
The Women’s Environmental Network is a professional organization of women in environmental careers, and is comprised of volunteers representing public and private sectors. Board members are elected annually by members of the WEN for three-year terms on a rotating basis. The Board meets six times per year and hosts five events per year for the membership and other interested parties. Board members are required to attend the Board meetings. In addition, each Board member is responsible for assisting in at least one WEN event each year and attending at least three events.
Board members gain practical experience in planning and implementing programs, learn to value each other, and grow from what it takes to maintain a valuable professional organization. There are also many opportunities to network and get involved in whatever your area of interest may be.
