The following is announcement from the City of Vancouver regarding the Women4Climate Mentorship Program
In 2019, Vancouver became the eighth city to launch a local C40 Women4Climate Mentorship Program. The W4C Mentorship Program is now in 16 cities worldwide, and aims to empower the next generation of climate leaders to create a healthier, greener, more resilient, and economically prosperous urban future.
Each year, mentees are matched with political and business sector leaders, as well as leaders from international and community organizations. Over the 10-month mentorship period, mentees:
- Receive knowledge, experience, and support from their mentors
- Partake in monthly leadership training and networking opportunities
- Network with local and international women working on their own climate initiatives
Are you working on a climate initiative that is advancing low carbon buildings and materials, active transportation and transit , complete communities, EV infrastructure, or carbon sequestration? Does your climate initiative actively work to reduce the systemic inequities experienced by residents throughout the city while meeting the needs of communities disproportionately impacted by climate change? If you live or work in Vancouver, this program may be for you.
The application deadline is March 7. For more information about the mentorship program and to apply, visit vancouver.ca/w4c.
