How You'll Learn, Share and Connect

The WILD Forum brings you content and speakers that offer concrete and transferable learning in formats that are fun, and  inspire. 

Another advantage? You’ll connect with others in a very authentic way.
Which makes the WILD Forum one of the best networking events of the year. 


A subject-matter expert will lead you through a structured process to develop and expand a specific skill. You’ll learn detailed techniques and/or tools you can immediately apply to your goals… in real time. You’ll have the chance to ask questions directly to presenters.

Inspiring Panels

Big ideas, important trends, illuminating research and behind-the-scenes intel that set the stage for the "what, why, and how" to advance women’s leadership, as well as equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging for ALL people.


Take a deep-dive into a pressing topic in the global development sector. Hear from multiple perspectives, and leave with concrete and transferable information, as well as an expanded network. 

Leadership FailLab

Hear from leaders speak from the heart about their leadership failures and successes in one of our most popular sessions.
