A virtual leadership fellowship for the

greatest women leaders and

change-makers of our time

Join women leaders from across the globe in a transformative virtual fellowship experience that will propel your leadership and impact forward.


Over the course of the year-long Women Leaders for the World (WLW)  fellowship, fellows will take a deep dive into building their personal strengths, sustainability, visions, and plans for action while gaining access to How Women Lead’s network of 13,000 powerful, global women from across all disciplines.​ 

With the current global pandemic changing the world around every facet, old strategies will be challenged, and old leadership will be put to test. As new leaders emerge, it will become increasingly important to stand out and not get left behind. 


This is a crucial time to consider new ways of growing your leadership that will not only fit in the new world, but will also dictate what the new world will look like. Women Leaders for the World's robust curriculum focuses on scaling your leadership, deepening your impact and expanding your network. 


You'll leave the WLW fellowship with:

A bold and inspiring vision for your organization

A strategic plan to implement your vision

An executive coach to help develop your action plan and support your personal growth


Deep connections with 2 expert advisors


Strategies for building your network at home
