What We Do
DC EcoWomen hosts a speaker series each month where a successful woman in the environmental field discusses her job and offers career advice.
EcoHour takes place from 6:00-8:00 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month at Teaism Penn Quarter in Washington, DC. Learn more about past speakers here. Though we hold several co-ed events throughout the year, EcoHour is reserved for women only.
We offer an array of ongoing programs and events geared toward bringing eco-minded women together to learn, discuss, network, and have fun. These include our book club gatherings and Green Lenses film club events.
DC EcoWomen is developing a mentoring program in which our members can form lasting relationships with influential women in the environmental field to get advice and guidance for advancing their careers. Mentor events include intimate dinner gatherings and speed-networking.
DC EcoWomen offers ongoing professional development workshops focused on helping women develop the skills to succeed in the workplace.
DC Ecowomen strives to support locally grown and produced products ranging from food to art. This also includes supporting companies in the DC area with eco-friendly business models.
In addition to professional development events, DC Ecowomen provides members with opportunities to give back to our community. Join us for cleaning up the Potomac or removing invasive weeds at local urban farms!
