An Environmental Law Institute Women in Environmental Law and Leadership (WELL) Event

What does career advancement look like for women in government pursuing environmental careers? Join ELI’s Women in Environmental Law and Leadership (WELL) initiative and expert panelists to explore pathways to government appointments and jobs in environmental protection, including career, political appointments and senate confirmed positions.

We are excited to host this WELL event on Remo, a unique virtual event and networking platform. After our panel discussion, all participants will have the opportunity to freely move around a virtual room and engage with other attendees at multiple tables.
