Women4Climate Addis Ababa
Addis Ababa Mentorship Programme 2019
C40 in partnership with the city of Addis Ababa will contribute to the emergence of the next generation of climate leaders by sharing knowledge and experience through an ambitious mentorship program dedicated to women in C40 cities. The C40 Addis Ababa Women4Climate Mentorship Program will match committed leaders from the business sector, international organisations, and community organisations with emerging female leaders. The mentors will share their knowledge and experiences, supporting the mentees in becoming powerful leaders in their chosen field including politics, NGOs, business, media, and community groups.
Addis Ababa is proud to be the first African city to launch a Women4Climate Mentorship programme. The aim of the program is to support 10 emerging women leaders to become more expert influencers while mobilising others in their efforts to accelerate climate action in meeting Addis Ababa’s sustainable environmental targets.
