Atlantic Council Global Energy Center’s Women Leaders in Energy and Climate Fellowship

[Shared by SDG7 YC CP’s]: The Atlantic Council Global Energy Center’s Women Leaders in Energy and Climate Fellowship is a one-year nonresident fellowship program for early to mid-career rising women leaders in the energy and climate fields. Now entering its sixth cohort, the program provides professional development for young women by cultivating their leadership potential, facilitating mentoring sessions with senior women leaders in the energy sector, and providing opportunities for public speaking and writing. The program is open to women under the age of 35 with at least three to five years of experience in the energy and climate fields.

Participation in the program includes the following professional development opportunities:
Participation in Atlantic Council events: The Global Energy Center hosts public and private events on energy topics throughout the year at its DC headquarters and elsewhere. The fellows will be included in Atlantic Council events where possible.
Publishing through the Atlantic Council: Fellows will have the opportunity to publish on the Global Energy Center’s Energy Source blog, and potentially write longer pieces if interested. They will be given editorial support and feedback, and the opportunity to help build their portfolio of publications.

The public speaking sessions are geared towards communication in a virtual setting and will teach fellows how to speak and moderate virtual panels, as well as general media communication skills.
