A Toxics-Free Future


Women's Caucus Updates

The IPEN Women's Caucus was established to provide a forum for planning, discussion, and engagement around gender issues related to chemical policy and advocacy. By providing venues where women in IPEN can share experiences, discuss strategies, and share skills, we aim to catalyze action by women in policy making arenas at all levels.
