Recognizing we can’t solve climate change alone, we’re pleased to support emerging climate leaders through the Women4Climate Mentorship Program” ~ Mayor Kennedy Stewart
The Women4Climate (W4C) program aims to advance bold, local climate action in alignment with Vancouver's Climate Emergency Action Plan.
This program contributes to the next generation of climate leaders through a mentorship program dedicated to women working in climate to create a healthier, greener, more resilient, and economically prosperous urban future. In 2019, Vancouver became the eighth city to launch a local C40 Women4Climate Mentorship Program External web site, opens in new tab.
Each year, we match political and business sector leaders, as well as leaders from international and community organizations with emerging women leaders. Over the 10-month mentorship period, mentors share their knowledge, experiences, and support the mentees to develop their leadership skills while advancing their climate initiatives.
