Women4Climate Sydney

Sydney Mentorship Programme 2019

“Climate action is the City of Sydney’s top priority. Working together, women leaders from government, business and the community are transforming our cities. We’re reducing the impact our urban centres have on the environment, while designing, building and governing places where people want to live. We know women are disproportionately impacted by climate change, and we know women leaders are both determined and effective." Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore

C40 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 Women4Climate Mentorship Program will match political leaders and committed leaders from the business sector, international organizations, and community organizations 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.

SYDNEY is proud to launch a Women4Climate Mentorship Program as part of the C40 network. The aim of the Sydney mentorship program 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, including politics, business, public service, NGOs and media.
