To better document the health impacts of corporate manipulation of data, Rachel’s Network members have pledged $50,000 over two years to help University of California San Francisco’s (UCSF) Chemical Industry Documents Archive add over 40,000 documents on glyphosate.
Rachel’s Network is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership organization that empowers and supports women environmental funders. We are hiring a Membership and Development Director to grow our West Coast membership and support our mission of promoting women as impassioned leaders dedicated to the stewardship of the earth.
Rachel’s Network members serve on the boards of organizations like Defenders of Wildlife, National Parks Conservation Association, NatureServe, Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy, Union of Concerned Scientists, Boys and Girls Club, Environmental Film Fest in the Nation’s Capital, International Fund for Animal Welfare, and many more. We help members like Kimberley reach their potential as funders, board members, and advocates through a board placement program, events, connections to experts, and discussion forums.
Women join Rachel’s Network for all kinds of reasons: for ideas, for support, for access to leading environmental thinkers. Member Elena Marszalek joined the Network in 2015 seeking peers and mentors to help her along her journey as Director of Del Mar Global Trust. We asked Elena about her experience with the Network.
Rachel’s Network has joined a broad coalition of Environmental and Conservation Groups to support the passage of a clean Dream Act in Congress.
