WEN Hackathon: Women solving man made problems

Join WEN and our partners in a hackathon-style event that unites women leaders working across different sectors to brainstorm best practices for women to gather, organize, communicate, give and receive feedback, build each other up, and form community!
WEN was started 22 years ago by women change leaders who felt that their voice was not being heard. After decades of advocacy and pushing for equality in the workplace and beyond, women are at a place where not only can we expect equality, we can thrive in our own unique way. Women communicate, organize, care, and lead differently and it is time to normalize and encourage these differences so we can build diverse organizations and movements that continue to support women across all communities and walks of life.
At the hackathon, women from different sectors will come together and work in breakout groups to deconstruct traditional solutions to the following environmental issues and evaluate each piece to see how we can do it better, as women.
- Chemical pollution in our bodies
- Resources for the next generation
- Dissolution of resilient communities
- Eco Anxiety
- Lack of mentoring
