Welcome to Women Leading the Way
Thank you for taking time out of your busy life to join us on this web site. This is a place where we celebrate the many ways that women lead. Each month we feature a story of a woman stepping up to lead the way - in her community, workplace, country, or tribe. We also offer capacity building activities and resources for nurturing all women in continuing to enhance our leadership skills and extend our influence. Knowing that we amplify our power when we connect with others, this site provides ways for women to learn with and from one another across cultures. We invite you to send stories of women you know who are making a difference in the world, and to submit methods and strategies you find effective in your own work as a leader.

Developing Women’s Leadership ~ Around the Globe, the Project introduced on this web site in March, is unfolding in exciting ways! The purpose of the Project is to amplify women’s voices, highlight the specific work that women are doing in six different countries plus Antioch University Seattle, and build community among women leaders around the globe.
These women were selected as Country Conveners because they are respected leaders in their local areas. They will call together six to ten other women in their area and engage them in dialogue around projects the participants are involved in, their leadership strengths and what more they want to do to enhance their leadership influence and impact. Each of these groups will have the opportunity to learn from one another and build community across the Globe. We know that we amplify our influence and our impact as we connect with one another.
