ACTIVATION

Meet with and learn from local women leaders at LoaTree’s office (508 E. Haley St.) as part of this Wave’s focus on Mujeres y Climate Justice. Moving beyond climate, this activation will pair long time women changemakers with others new to movement-building or those looking for female-based inspiration. Think of this activation as ‘get-to-know-the-leader speed dating.’

This activation is extremely limited and closed to those who attended the Gathering for this Wave.  Appetizers and wine will make for a fun and lively, yet intimate affair.

Details for this event including date and the women mentors in attendance are coming soon! Want to request a space for this Activation? Email us at info@betterworldseries.com.
