Founder and CEO
1 Million Women
Natalie Isaacs is the founder and CEO of 1 Million Women, the movement of women and girls who take practical action to fight dangerous climate change by changing the way they live.
Natalie, a former cosmetics manufacturer, realised that individual and collective action is key to solving the climate crisis. Deciding to leave behind the over-packaged world of skin and beauty care, she set out to create an organisation that inspires and empowers women to act.
Under her leadership 1 Million Women is now a movement of over 600,000 women. Natalie is a pioneer in the gender and climate change arena in Australia. Her own climate journey from apathy to real action cuts through complexity and delivers a simple message that resonates with women and girls of all ages. In 2013, the United Nations awarded 1 Million Women for the work they do as one of six women-led grassroots climate action programs – selected from hundreds around the world.
