WELA scholarships are designed to accommodate and encourage diversity in the WELA program and community, and more widely in the environment and climate movement. If we’re to succeed in our goals for a diverse and thriving movement, we need to support even more women.
First Nations leadership in the environment and climate movement, except in very select areas, is often unrepresented, unsupported and unpaid. Environmental justice in Australia is tied to First Nations justice and by supporting more indigenous women in their leadership, we can mutually learn, empower and support each other to work towards these goals.
Now, we have a chance to support more First Nations leaders together, through the WELA Alumni funded First Nations scholarship.
We are aiming to raise $5,500 to support a full participation for one woman.
