Supporting Women Environmental Leaders
At Rachel’s Network, we know that elevating women of color results in a healthier, safer, and more just world, and we are committed to investing in them. That’s why we created the Catalyst Award.
Queen conch are a culturally, biologically, and economically significant species in the Caribbean that has faced serious declines in recent years. Community Conch and its fiscal sponsor Rachel’s Network celebrated the announcement that the Bahamas plans to phase out export of queen conch by 2022.
Rachel’s Network today announced the awardees and finalists of its second annual Catalyst Award. The award provides women leaders of color support and recognition for their commitment to a healthy planet, along with a $10,000 prize, networking opportunities, and national recognition for their work.
Rachel’s Network has joined other philanthropic donors in urging Congress to support an Emergency Charity Stimulus that would release $200 billion to frontline nonprofits and community organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic and recovery.
