Help us transform the lives of 40M people

on the frontlines of the climate crisis

We can't solve the climate crisis without women at the center.

Women shoulder the heaviest burdens of climate change, environmental violence, and ecosystem destruction. As caregivers to families and communities, keepers of traditional knowledge, and stewards of the Earth and its resources, they are also uniquely positioned to address the urgent environmental and climate challenges we face.

WEA delivers funding and technical, entrepreneurial, and leadership training to women leading environmental justice projects around the world — empowering women's leadership to protect the environment and build healthier, more resilient communities now and into the future.


The WEA Way

When women leaders are equipped with resources and support to scale their solutions, share resources and knowledge, and hone their strategies for change, real transformation takes root. 

From Ripple to Wave

In some of the most environmentally threatened places in the world, WEA leaders are taking action to address our world’s most pressing environmental challenges. Women leaders share their solutions for years to come — creating a ripple effect that benefits communities, our Earth, and future generations.
