Who We Are

Women Lead Network is a collective of women who work to ensure that women’s needs are central in discussions about world problems and that they are engaged as leaders as solutions to those problems.

To be a collective means that we engage our work without hierarchy. We all bring important skills and experiences and have diverse backgrounds, all of which are equally important and equally valid. This also means that we acknowledge that while we have agreed to engage in working together to centralize women’s experiences, amplify women’s voices, facilitate women’s access and promote women’s leadership we don’t see ourselves as the experts in other women’s lives.

What we mean by “women”: We acknowledge that identity is personal and political, so it’s important for us to share what we mean when we talk about women. To us, the identity of woman is self-acclaimed and can include all who define themselves as women, as well as other birthing and menstruating people
