Educating girls & empowering women

Support womens’ empowerment and leadership

When women are empowered it unlocks female leadership in decision-making and policy change that benefits everyone.

International research shows that when women are empowered it unlocks women’s leadership in decision-making and policy change that benefits everyone - leading to better outcomes for their families, communities and future generations. Women are important agents of positive change and are a critical part of the solution to regenerate our communities and our planet. 

We are being called to activate our agency and contribute our skills and resources to help elevate women with opportunities for growth, employment and leadership. 

There are so many ways you can get involved - including if you are female or nonbinary idenifying and looking for opportunities to learn, grow and join supportive communities - here are some suggestions for where you can start:
