WOMEN LEADERS FOR THE WORLD (WLW)

Women Leaders for the World was built by change-makers, for change-makers.  This fellowship program aims to accelerate leaders from the nonprofit, media, government, and social enterprise sectors by going through an intensive experiential process to break-through old paradigms and advance to new levels of personal and professional leadership.

 

And They Of Course Don't Go at it Alone...

We all know it takes a village to achieve our biggest dreams and aspirations. This is why we support our Global Fellows with coaching and partner them with accomplished Global Advisors during the duration of the fellowship to help them foster the most growth.

This spring, How Women Lead organized a special cohort for our Women Leaders for the World Fellowship of Abortion and Reproductive Health, Rights, & Justice leaders from different countries and areas of practice to advance access and opportunities for women across the globe. These leaders are working diligently to advance many projects and initiatives, such as restructuring and expanding legal services and organizational infrastructure to protect women criminalized for having abortions in "trigger states" post-Roe.

What do WLW graduates have to say?

"Women leaders of the World gave me the confidence to go for my dreams and really advocate for myself. The time with my cohort gave much needed time to reflect on what I was attempting to achieve and how to go about it. It also reinforced that it takes a village to reach your goals and WLW helped me create a new village that was ready to lift me up. The advisors worked with me one on one and helped hone in various skills that were pivotal to my success. When they didn’t have the answers they were able to connect me with those who could. We all have the inner saboteur waiting to take us down. WLW gave me the tools to stop listening to the negative and start hearing the positive. I am so very grateful for my experience."
