GWC Earth Day Anniversary Panel Discussion


Is Climate Change a gender issue?  What are the impacts of environmental conditions on infectious diseases? How can empowering women save the planet from climate collapse?
You’ll be surprised at the answers…

On April 21st, the eve of the 50th Anniversary celebration of Earth Day, the Democrats Abroad Global Women's Caucus will present a virtual panel discussion on "Women and the Environment".  

A UN report tells us "Women’s unequal participation in decision-making processes and labor markets compound inequalities and often prevent women from fully contributing to climate-related planning, policy-making and implementation.”  

About our speakers

The panel participants examining this issue include:

Alyssa Fischer - a climate and sustainability expert,

Dr. Cara Maesano - a scientist and researcher in environmental epidemiology, and 

Dana Powers - an environmental journalist specializing in renewable energy.
