Celebrating female contributions to the fight for the future of our planet
We were interested to come across this article the other day, celebrating the contributions of ‘25 badass women’ to shaping climate action in 2021. Released on International Women’s Day, this year’s GreenBiz’s third roll call of female leaders who are making a significant difference in working to counteract climate change and its impacts.
The list includes an interesting mix of dynamic women in politics, business and NGOs. There are some obvious choices, such as New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Dame Ellen McArthur. There are also some less obvious ones, like Amazon’s head of worldwide sustainability, Kate Hurst, and Mellody Hobson, co-CEO and president of Ariel Investments.
The article also mentions this year’s Women in Sustainability Leadership Awards. The deadline for nominations has been extended to 2 April, so if you know a woman who has made a meaningful contribution to corporate climate action and who has seven or more years of management or leadership experience, you can nominate her at wslaalumni.submittable.com/submit.
But if you know a badass woman who is doing great things in sustainability, at whatever level, we’d love to know about her! Please tag her on our LinkedIn post and let us know why you believe she deserves recognition for her contribution. We’ll plant a tree for the first 100.
