Your Collective. Your Impact.

Luneer Collective is founded on the belief that the Earth urgently needs more women at the helm on conservation and climate issues in order to build a more sustainable, resilient and just world. This is about more than leveling the playing field–it’s about engaging everyone’s brain power and talent to maximize every organization’s ability to sustain the planet. It’s about giving women a strong voice in issues that impact them the most, like the climate crisis. It’s about the tremendous potential for solutions that comes from connecting and co-powering a community of diverse, talented women committed to the cause of safeguarding the environment and our future.

Your voice matters–tell us what you think and help shape everything we create for you.

OUR “WHY”

 

    • Because the Planet needs women’s superpowers to radically reshape our world for the better.

 

    • Because women care deeply about the planet—they are the majority of employees in conservation organizations, they buy more eco-friendly products and invest more in green funds, and they are on the frontline of crisis and change—they deserve a voice at the table where the decisions get made.

 

    • Because there is power in the pod, in radical collaboration, in sharing stories, in leaning on and learning from a collective of diverse, creative and committed women with whom you share your struggles and a passion for the planet.

 

 

WHAT WE DO

 

We empower women with the know-how, nurturing and networking they need to thrive as impactful leaders. We share stories, strategies and successes of what’s worked for us as leaders. We hold safe and brave space for each other where we can talk about the challenges and fears we face, and draw comfort from knowing we are not alone. We co-create an inclusive, diverse and open community to lift women up and help navigate the complex role of of mid-level leadership.

MEET SHARON RYAN, CEO & FOUNDER

 

Hi, I’m Sharon (she/her). As a fisher’s daughter growing up in outport Newfoundland, I was always out combing the rugged hills and rocky shorelines, enjoying the wild beauty of ‘this place.’ As islanders do, I moved out into the world, carrying my deeply rooted sense of place. A successful, fulfilling career has led me to other special places over the last 25 years and to organizations like the Charles Darwin Research Station in the Galapagos Islands, and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama. There, I led strategy, development, communications, and training and education programs, with a focus on underserved populations, to increase public engagement in science and conservation.

 

These days, I facilitate gatherings and strategic planning processes for research and conservation, and empower women in leadership through peer coaching and leadership development programs. Previously, I was program chair and on the planning committee of the University of Florida’s Inspiring Women Leaders Conference (2018 to 2020), helping to grow the event and center diversity, equity and inclusion in programming. I believe in the importance of connecting and co-powering women and women-identifying people to drive transformative change for the planet. The more women and diversity we have in leadership roles, the better, brighter and greener the world will be for everyone.

 

My toolbox is diverse. I hold a bachelor of arts, a bachelor of public relations, a master’s in environmental education and communications (#lifelonglearner). My facilitation and consulting practice is grounded in the Technology of Participation (ToP) methodology, pioneered by ICA Associates Canada, a global leader in training professional facilitators. I’m a recipient of the Smithsonian Institution’s Education Award for outstanding achievements in education, and was part of teams at two organizations that won the prestigious BBVA Biodiversity Award for Conservation in Latin America.

 

When not in the Collective, I can be found devouring books, yoga flowing, cooking up a scoff, hanging with my kids and partner, a marine biologist with whom I share a deep love of the ocean (pun intended), or walking Luna of the soulful eyes and jungle-dog-at-heart nature.
