Wedu was founded in 2012 to address the problem of the lack of female leaders in Asia. Since then, we have grown rapidly from 5 Rising Stars in our first cohort to 140 in 2015. Wedu is committed to serving 1,000 Rising Stars by 2018.
Wedu is creating a global community of change-makers who are invested in women’s leadership development in Asia. To date, Wedu’s community is over 1000 people strong, consisting of Rising Stars, Talent Spotters, Mentors, and supporters from around the world.
