IWD 2018

To celebrate our sixth year and International Women’s Day, we recognized that we would not be here without our growing global community of Rising Stars, Leadership Fellows, Mentors, Partners, donors, and supporters. We are blessed to work with people who believe that harnessing the full power and potential of women can transform the world and proudly feature some of them here.
