The CTI-CFF WLF’s Women’s Intergenerational Leadership Learning Forum, which is being implemented by the Coral Triangle Center (CTC) and the US Department of the Interior-International Technical Assistance Program (USDOI-ITAP) with funding support from USAID RDMA, in collaboration with the CTI-CFF Regional Secretariat and the CTI-CFF National Coordinating Committees, aims to create a knowledge sharing platform between the senior marine conservation women leaders in the six Coral Triangle countries who will serve as mentors to a younger generation of early career women who show both potential and interest in developing leadership qualities.
The intent of the program is to build a cadre of next generation young women leaders from the Coral Triangle countries who are empowered to lead marine conservation programs in support of the CTI-CFF goals, and beyond. The program will include one regional interactive, participatory learning forum, a small grants program for a young professional led marine conservation project which will be implemented by a mentee and supervised by a mentor, and a final regional sharing workshop at the end of the program.
Together, the two generations of marine conservation practitioners will work on the project, and ideally set the groundwork for the young professionals to establish themselves as the next generation of marine conservationists.
This program will be implemented over 12 months and is expected to cover one pair of mentor-mentee for each of the CT countries or a total of six (6) senior women mentors and six (6) women mentees. The mentor-mentees will be selected through this open call/submission of applications and will be selected from a pool of women leaders committed to the marine conservation and sustainability goals under the CTI-CFF Regional Plan of Action.
Each participant in the Collaborative Leadership Learning Forum will have the opportunity to work directly with a mentor on their collaborative leadership development track, as well as a working side-by-side with a coach on their Conservation Challenge projects read more..
