Like Lunch? Like Leadership?

Join us! On March 11th at 12pm EST, C2C Fellows launches the second C2C Fellows Exclusive opportunity – Leadership 4 Lunch!

Remember that first conversation we had about C2C Fellows participating in the climate talks in Doha? The quest to become a leader does not stop after your introduction to the C2C Fellows network – it’s about what you do next.

We encourage C2C Fellows to continue their leadership training—and we offer a few scholarships each year to specific training initiatives to take it to the next level. On March 11th, we’ll have four partnering leadership institutes on the phone to describe their programs and answer your questions. And on March 18th? We’ll launch the C2C Fellows application process to attend StartingBloc’s Institute for Social Innovation this summer!
