Women4Climate Montreal

Montréal Mentorship Programme 2020

The City of Montréal, in partnership with the Council for Sustainable Industries, Ellio Inc. and the Government of Quebec, is proud to launch its third edition of the Women4Climate mentorship programme as part of the C40 network.

The Montréal Sustainable Development Path offers 20 small and medium-sized companies individual support to help them become role models of sustainable, inspiring businesses, benefitting all city residents.

Among the 20 participants, as part of C40 initiative Women4Climate, 7 women were selected and will address climate change through innovative, forward-thinking projects.

The aim of the Montréal mentorship programme is to support emerging women leaders to become more expert influencers while mobilising others to be influential in their efforts to accelerate action on climate change. The program aims to provide participants with the support they need to become even more effective leaders in their chosen field.

C40 will contribute to the emergence of the next generation of climate leaders by sharing knowledge and experiences through an ambitious mentorship programme dedicated to women in C40 cities.  The C40 Women4Climate Mentorship Programme will match committed leaders from C40 cities, from across the business sector, public sector, international organisations and civil society 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, public sector, NGOs, business, media and community groups.
