Women bring many unique and needed skills to conservation
Seventh Generation Institute has started a new program by, for, and about women in conservation. The program is intended to cross-over with and add on to the International Program and other programs.
12-3-18. The Institute is now seeking 1 or 2 interns to participate in this program and also benefit from it. Please see the position description here.
The initial step was to develop a series of workshops that will be offered to both women and men, although the content is focused on improving skills for women in all roles in conservation
We are excited to report that the response to the initial outreach has been strong. Our first workshop is called Women Making Waves for Nature and will be held December 13th on Bonaire. Representatives from most of the local conservation non-governmental organizations will be attending and we are very excited to work with these dedicated conservationists.
Initial Program Goals
Increase the participation of women in conservation at all levels and in all roles, as is appropriate for their particular culture.
Increase the skills and effectiveness of women as they participate in conservation.
