Emerging Leaders

Submissions will be accepted through May 6, 2024 11:59pm PST


As the premier convening sustainable finance professionals harnessing the power of capital markets to realize a net zero economy, GreenFin 24 (June 17-19, New York City, NY) will convene leaders from across the sustainability community - including leading finance, investment and ESG professionals. By attending, you'll gain access to inspiring keynotes, engaging breakout sessions and valuable networking that will empower you with the knowledge and connections you need to accelerate your organization's sustainability strategy.

The Emerging Leaders Program aims to elevate, cultivate and support the next generation of Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) leaders in the climate community. Our goal is to foster a community of sustainability professionals that is diverse and representative of the world in which we live. We do so by fostering pathways into the sustainability space for students and early-career professionals who face barriers to entry in the field.



Selected GreenFin 24 Emerging Leaders will receive a complimentary all-access scholarship to participate in the conference - which comes with special recognition and networking opportunities at the event exclusive to Emerging Leaders.

Selected applicants will also gain access to ongoing professional development, networking, mentorship, and support through the Emerging Leaders Network - joining a growing cohort of 300+ diverse peers making an impact across the sustainability industry.

The scholarship covers registration fees, airfare, lodging, and meals at the event.


To apply, applicants must:

  1. Currently reside in the United States, Canada, or Mexico
  2. Possess a cultural identity consistent with BIPOC - Black, Indigenous, and People of Color
  3. Be enrolled at an accredited college or university as a full-time undergraduate or graduate student OR be an early-career professional with less than 10 years of professional experience
  4. Commit to attending a virtual program orientation on Thursday, June 6th, 2024 (7pm EST) as well as all three days of GreenFin 24 in New York City, New York, June 17-19, 2024
