We envision a world where half of all leaders are women.

In a world where only 10% of world leaders are women, it’s important that every woman has the opportunity to reach her full potential.


We exist to nurture the leadership development of women changemakers around the world by supporting their unique, lifelong journeys with leadership development programmes, opportunities, and funding for education.

Meet some of our Rising Stars


“I have been a Wedu Rising Star since January 2018. Being a rising star at Wedu invariably reminds me that I have the potential and the aptitude to accomplish whatever I wish to, irrespective of my gender, background, or nationality. Further, getting matched with incredibly empathetic and experienced mentors has aided me in streamlining my short-term and long-term goals in the most rational manner. My mentors have also assisted me in developing and honing my leadership skills, which is an essential component of personal and professional growth.”


“Being a Rising Star, this experience has shaped me into a better version of myself who has learned to acknowledge the power of impactful leadership, mindful goal-setting and a strong commitment towards change. My mentorship journey has been very well aligned with my goal and has helped me stay focused as well as hopeful of the process.”

Rising Stars set themselves apart as changemakers who take action across every sector of society. They not only have the passion, commitment, and vision to lead the change in their communities, but consistently demonstrate the ambition, courage, and inspiration to see this change through.
