Women's leadership in climate action varies widely within different contexts with gender norms, power asymmetries, positionality and intentionality shaping divergent experiences of empowerment and leadership. In this interactive session, we invite a group of diverse women working in grassroots, constituency, government organisations and multilateral development banks to share their perspectives on the factors that shape climate leadership. Learnings from this event will contribute to greater understanding of the factors driving locally led adaptation, particularly on Principle 2 and the structural inequalities faced by women and members of other marginalized groups. We invite women to reflect on what they believe are the most important enablers and barriers to women's climate leadership, sharing personal insight as well as those from their different areas of expertise. The session will include small break out groups around different topics of women's leadership which participants can move through freely to vocalize or listen in on experience sharing.
