Where are the women?

Last Updated: Nov 9, 2021 @ 11:26 pm

The climatecrisis is at our doorstep and affecting us all. But the perspectives on, and decisions about how to tackle it, have been made mainly by men who speak on behalf of a fraction of the population. 

Just 2 out of 12 people in the COP26 UK leadership team are women. Without action, it will take 145.5 years to attain gender parity in politics globally, according to the WorldEconomicForum’s Global Gender Gap report. 

SHEClimate’s global mission is to ensure all delegations, for all climate negotiations, have at least a 50% representation of diverse women at their top levels, now and in the future. 

We have the POWER is supporting SheChangesClimate to ensure the gender imbalance of decision making at COP26, doesn’t go unnoticed. 

GenderDay (9th November), I’ll join SheChangesClimate’s panel discussions and interviews at The Pipe Factory, Glasgow.

The day will highlight why women are crucial in climate leadership.    We Have the POWER’s Julia Davies will be speaking on how women’s personal finance can create meaningful change, plus helping source sustainable, packaging-free catering from GoodClub (Good Club: Sustainable and Zero Waste Groceries Delivered to Your Door) and Ecoeats (ecoeats | zero-emissions delivery ).
