WAND IS PROUD TO BE A GENDER CHAMPION OF NUCLEAR POLICY

As a gender champion, we are committed to:

1

Hiring and promoting women from diverse backgrounds. We particularly seek to raise the voices of women of color, LGBTQ women, and differently abled women because we believe that having a diversity of experience is critical to producing the highest quality work and effectively communicating to the largest audience possible.

2

Being a resource for others organizations and individuals seeking diverse women’s voices for speaking and writing opportunities.

3

Hosting monthly meetings for women Capitol Hill staffers who work in or are interested in denuclearization, peace, and national security. These meetings are bi-partisan and are led by a different woman expert each month. The goal is to create a space where women who are early in their career can learn from those who are more seasoned and we can grow the number of women who will continue to work in the field as policy experts, activists, and elected officials.
