WILD Supports Global Development Leaders to Scale their Impact & Thrive.

We build and connect the ecosystem of stakeholders that believe in creating cultures of inclusive leadership. We craft each professional development and networking experience to foster meaningful connections, and actionable take-aways. They are also energizing and fun. (Because don't we already experience enough grind?)

Ways We Are Supporting Global Development


We bring together stakeholders in the social change sector – corporations, NGOs, investors, donors, social fellowship programs to spark industry-wide dialogue and action on promoting female leadership, diversity, equity, and inclusion. Through team leadership workshops and organizational consulting services, we are sparking change at the organizational and system level.


We identify the ways in which the organizations can become more alert to the advantages of strong female leadership, equity, diversity and inclusion and provide individual organizations training, resources, and support through implementation. Stakeholders have gone on to develop employee resource groups (ERGs), undergo gender equity certification, among other transformative steps to promote female leadership and D&I.

Individual level

We’re passionate about the individual woman and how she can commit herself to making the world a better place without burning out. We identify the skills that women can develop to lead more effectively within their organizations. Through our coaching services and leadership workshops, as well as networking events, we support women with best practices and research and empower them to increase their influence and impact.
