The Indigenous Women’s Leadership Network (IWLN) is intended for Native American women who are interested in working on water and natural resource issues in Indian country. IWLN seeks to:
• Connect emerging Native American women leaders to established, well-recognized Native American women
• Develop a community of individuals supporting one another in honoring traditional language, culture, and
community with economic and professional opportunities so women who want to work in their chosen
professions can find or create job opportunities in their chosen professions on their tribal homelands; and
• Create a platform for Native American women working on water and natural resource issues to mentor and
inspire each other, exchange information, build and refine skills in leadership, and to facilitate a succession
of Native American women in positions of leadership in their community.
To assist in this effort, we are collecting information from Native women regarding their needs, interests, and priorities related to leadership development.
