Lead for people and the planet

A new opportunity is now available!

We have just launched the 2nd version of our unique Digital Academy and Mentorship program.

We are committed to making an impact in the Global South by offering an online mentorship program coupled with technical training sessions on key themes around planetary health through different modules.


OUR VISION - Build a world that values planetary health and enables gender equity. For that, we support leadership skills to enhance equitable decision making and participation of women in key socio-economic themes that are linked to planetary health.


OUR MISSION - We empower women to be transformative agents in the areas related to Planetary Health (i.e. health, environment, human rights, global governance,) with a focus on female leaders from Low-and-Middle Income Countries (LMICs) through mutually supportive relationships between like-minded individuals and network opportunities.
