The Women4Climate (W4C) program aims to advance bold, local climate action in alignment with Vancouver's Climate Emergency Action Plan and Climate Change Adaption Strategy.

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 .

Each year, we match leaders from international and community businesses and 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. Mentees are also able to access leadership training and participate in international networking events with other women working in climate.
