Natalie Isaacs is the founder and CEO of 1 Million Women, a global movement of women and girls who take practical action to fight climate change by changing the way they live.
A former cosmetics manufacturer, Natalie realised that individual action is a powerful path to solving the climate crisis. She decided to leave behind the overpackaged world of skin and beauty care to create an organisation that inspires and empowers women to act.
Under Natalie’s leadership, 1 Million Women has become one of Australia’s largest networks acting on climate change and is rapidly expanding internationally, with more than 800,000 women and counting. A sought-after presenter and The Australian Geographic society’s 2017 Conservationist of Year, Natalie delivers a simple message that resonates with women and girls of all ages, cutting through complexity with the story of her climate journey from apathy to action. She is a pioneer in the gender and climate change arena in Australia, and is recognised and supported by some of the world’s most influential women climate leaders.
