C40, in partnership with the city of Toronto, 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 Women4Climate Toronto Mentorship Program will match committed leaders from the business sector, international organizations, and community organizations with emerging women leaders. Over the course of the program, which runs until June 2023, mentees will consult with mentors from the public and private sector with expertise in a variety of fields, including climate change/action, business, finance, marketing and communications.

We are pleased to share that Shatha Qaqish-Clavering, Director of Strategy and Operations at Climate Positive Energy, is participating in the Women4Climate program as a Climate Mentor. Shatha will share her knowledge and experiences, supporting her mentees in becoming powerful leaders in their chosen fields. The aim of the program is to support emerging women leaders to become more expert influencers while mobilizing others in their efforts to accelerate climate action.
