Climate Resilience Leadership Network

The Climate Resilience Leadership Network fosters robust leadership development in an experiential cohort-based program designed to awaken, build, and grow stewards needed to create and nurture healthier and more resilient communities in the Los Angeles region.

Participants will benefit from 1) adaptive leadership skill-building through Coro’s unique blend of experiential and immersive programming, 2) peer learning, 3) capacity-building explorations with  experienced community leaders, climate resilience practitioners, trained facilitators, and partners, and 4) network exposure to the broader regional community through cross-boundary collaboration.

This program has been designed in collaboration with Accelerate Resilience Los Angeles (ARLA) and the Regenesis Institute.

Coro’s programs deliver deep impact (see more in the “Program Impact & Testimonials” tab above and in the Program Benefits Guide) at a highly subsidized professional development rate. Climate and environmental work and the challenges your team members face while engaging in this work are complex. Investing in your team by expanding their skills, network, and knowledge further builds your capacity to deliver on your organization’s mission. 

Supporting team members – either financially and/or with the time and space to participate fully in CRLN – yields strong organizational benefits by:

  • Demonstrating your commitment to the employee, increasing their feeling of engagement, which often leads to higher productivity, loyalty, and retention;
  • Increasing the skills of employees in critical positions that can be incorporated departmentally and instilled in their direct reports; and 
  • Motivating all employees by signaling that leadership and a commitment to their work is rewarded by the organization.

Connect with Coro to discuss an organizational partnership and nominate a member of your team for CRLN.

“In an era defined by climate change, there is an urgent need to empower leaders to confront these challenges holistically.
ARLA’s partnership with Coro in the Climate Resilience Leadership
Network (CRLN) harnesses Coro’s track record in leadership development with ARLA’s climate expertise to prepare leaders to navigate complex climate challenges from a systems perspective and lead with empathy, adaptability and accountability. The CLRN program nurtures a supportive network for sharing knowledge across sectors, providing leaders with essential tools to reach their fullest potential in navigating these complexities.”
