Global disaster relief organization ShelterBox USA will hold a virtual panel discussion on International Women’s Day next Tuesday, March 8, on female leadership in the face of climate change.

Women are disproportionately affected by climate change. Eighty percent of those displaced by climate-related disasters are women and girls, according to the U.N. and they are also often the first responders during disasters.

ShelterBox USA’s 5th Annual International Women’s Day Panel will focus on what women leaders from Patagonia, African Women Rising, and Rotary International are doing to create a sustainable impact and empower the next generation to address the climate crisis. 

The panel follows the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report this week that found widespread impacts around the globe – including millions forced from their homes by climate change-fueled extreme weather – and warns those numbers will increase unless more action is taken by leaders.

WHAT:    ShelterBox USA’s 5th International Women’s Day Panel.
WHO:      Kerri Murray, President, ShelterBox USA
                 Jennifer Jones, President Elect, Rotary International
                 Corley Kenna, Head of Communications and Policy, Patagonia
                 Linda Eckerbom Cole, Executive Director and Founder, African Women Rising
