The election of 2022 is already shaping up to have two predominant issues – climate change and gender. Jane Caro and Jane Gleeson-White will join Women’s Climate Congress Founder, Janet Salisbury to talk about how women can support each other to lead from the front on these major issues; to make the most of this moment in time to rebalance political systems towards care for humans and care for the planet.

This event aims to create a safe, nonpartisan space for women to explore their response to climate change and other policy issues, and to support women’s leadership and authority to set policy directions in line with our caring responsibilities for people and the planet.
