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.
Rachel’s Network announced the awardees and finalists of its third annual Catalyst Award. The award honors women leaders of color for their commitment to a healthy planet, and provides them with a cash prize, networking opportunities, and national recognition for their work.
Several Rachel’s Network members are passionate about marine conservation and oceans funding. We asked three of them—Martha Davis, Laura Francis, and Lisa Holmes—how they got into this issue and what they’re funding.
EARTHDAY.ORG president and environmental advocate Kathleen Rogers has joined the nonprofit funders’ network Rachel’s Network as a liaison. Under Kathleen’s leadership, EARTHDAY.ORG has grown into a global policy and activist organization with an international staff engaging the public on issues like climate change, conservation, pollution, and more.
