Pacific Standard, the sponsor of the Women and the Environment (WE) conference, is the award-winning magazine for readers interested in working toward forward-looking changes to private behavior and public policy. By combining research that matters with ambitious narrative and investigative reporting, Pacific Standard tells stories across print and digital platforms about society’s biggest problems, both established and emerging, and the people attempting to solve them.

Attendees will each receive a one-year subscription to Pacific Standard magazine.
