Women4Climate Vancouver

Vancouver Mentorship Programme 2021

Deadline extended until March 9

The climate crisis is upon us. We need bold leadership throughout society to avoid catastrophic climate change. Vancouver has a plan to cut our emissions in half by 2030. Recognizing we can’t get there alone, we’re pleased to support emerging climate leaders through the Women4Climate Mentorship Program.
Mayor Kennedy Stewart, City of Vancouver

C40 will contribute to the emergence of the next generation of climate leaders by sharing knowledge and experience through a mentorship program dedicated to women working on climate issues to create a healthier, more sustainable and resilient urban future in C40 cities.

The C40 Women4Climate Mentorship Program matches forward looking mentors from politics, business sector, international organizations, and civil society with mentees. The mentors share their knowledge and experiences supporting the mentees to become powerful leaders in their chosen field, including politics, NGOs, business, media, and community groups.

Vancouver was the eighth city to launch a Women4Climate Mentorship Program. In its third year, Vancouver is seeking mentees from a diverse range of sectors and backgrounds focused on climate change mitigation. Preference will be given to applicants currently working on initiatives supporting Vancouver’s Climate Emergency Action Plan  – specifically those advancing low carbon buildings, active transportation and transit, zero emission vehicles, and natural carbon sequestration.

We encourage the following to apply: entrepreneurs, researchers, designers, contractors, finance professionals, manufacturers, urban planners, green tech specialists, architects, engineers, geoscientists, educators, social workers, environmental anthropologists, politicians, and any woman working on an innovative initiative aligned with  Vancouver’s Climate Emergency Action Plan.

We will prioritize applicants whose climate projects work with diverse or disproportionally impacted communities to create a more equitable, sustainable, and inclusive future.  


WHO CAN APPLY? Please review the application guidelines available in the sidebar.
