The CLEO Institute created ‘Empowering Resilient Women, The Power of WE’ – a program for women and adolescent girls to connect the dots between climate change, health risks, economy, emergency preparedness, and civic engagement.

Women, who in most cases are first responders in crises or decision-makers at home, are more likely than men to be affected by the changing climate. Studies show that women and girls are 14 times more likely than men to die during a disaster and extreme weather events. These gender differences are directly linked to women’s economic and social rights.?? However, women and girls are pivotal in addressing this issue successfully. As breadwinners, caregivers, and community builders we can be great agents of change.  The opportunity lies in empowering women and girls to be more resilient and provide tools and resources to strengthen their leadership in their communities.

Each session is a 2-hour workshop that includes subject matter experts and guest speakers to facilitate meaningful discussions and interaction.

WE Lead: Leadership skills and mentorship workshop to empower the next generation of leaders. Expose participants to climate jobs and industries such as environmental conservation, STEM, policy, art, and nonprofit work.
