Elevating and Mobilizing the Changemakers of Our Time
These are times of immense challenge and exciting possibility for leaders in the field of reproductive health, rights, and justice. While determined feminist activism has made possible stunning advances in abortion access from Mexico to Nepal, Ireland and Argentina, abortion bans are taking hold in the US and Poland. Women Leaders for the World wants to support and guide non-profit CEOs and Directors in this fight. It's time to act now!

“It is always very important that when we meet people, we seek to understand each other and know that we are not alone. And being a part of the WLW fellowship provided me with a heightened level of support, community, and resources. It was such a great experience to have a community there to get to know us, love us, accompany us and follow us through our social impact journeys. That’s one of the things that this program supported me with."
